Palm Springs gallery show explores depictions of western landscapes – desert sun | Ad On Picture

The mystery of the desert begins with the barren land dotted with cacti, mesquite and joshua trees, and scattered palm-fringed oases. The area has motivated architects to experiment with innovative ideas for urban modernity. Solving the mystery of the desert is the goal of Desert Vibes, a photo exhibition that explores the western landscape through photography and digital art.

Delphine Bordas and Matthew Bamberg, artists at the Desert Art Center in downtown Palm Springs, explore the contrasting scenes of the West, from the organic shapes and gray tones in Borda’s black-and-white prints to Bamberg’s rendering of the vibrant colors and shapes of the mid- Century modern signage and architecture.

To piece the landscape puzzle together, one must consider the towering mountain ranges that prevent rain-producing clouds from penetrating inland to the west, creating an endless array of thorny cacti and small-leaved bushes that rise from the sandy terrain under the scorching sun.
