Michael Peterson, Mesa, from the "Landscape Series", 1993, locust and india ink, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Fleur and Charles Bresler in honor of Kenneth R. Trapp, curator-in-charge of the Renwick Gallery (1995--2003), 2003.60.45
Michael Peterson's Landscape Series is inspired by the forest and sea life of the Pacific Northwest. He works with dried locust wood and often bleaches and sandblasts the finished form so that the surface appears eroded by sand, wind, and water.
