"The art of Maynard Dixon is about the land. The color, temperature, intensity, and vastness of the desert were his subjects; the rhythms and forces of nature were his themes.

We might call him a poet and a politician in addition to painter, such is Dixon's power to enable us to feel both the energy and the elegance of our own geography and by extension, to reflect upon the importance of the earth to virtually everything we do."
