Artist Statement
“In an 1878 Los Angeles Times article describing the magic of Ojai Valley, the writer declared ‘The magnetic center of the earth is here.’ Indeed, many visitors express experiencing a spiritual connection to the area. Certainly, I felt a sense of inner peace with this scene as well as an appreciation for living in Southern California. The fact that the Topatopas span an east-west direction makes it one of the few locations in the world to experience the ‘pink moment’ phenomenon during sunset. At this occurrence, the picturesque apricot orchard in the foreground falls under the shadow of the nearby mountains and the entire scene takes on a contemplative mood. Evenings in the Ojai Valley are renowned for their exceptional serenity and beauty. The name 'Ojai' finds its roots in the Chumash language, specifically the word 'Awahi,' which translates to 'moon.' The Chumash People have a rich history dating back thousands of years in the region, and historical records indicate their profound interest in the study of the cosmos. It is interesting to think that this same pink moment has been gazed upon for millennia."
