"When I first started painting landscapes, I made a lot of paintings from dreams. I never even considered using photographs — I thought that was cheating! And then I was touring around the American Southwest with a camera. Looking at that landscape, I realized that it is more amazing and surreal and astonishing than anything that I could dream or make up, so I decided I'd start to use photographs. I soon realized that the photographs didn't have enough information for me to copy them exactly, and the more I worked with them, the more I realized that I could trust myself to interfere with my starting points in a positive, creative way." —April GornikRead Less
