About Escavada

Escavada is named after the Escavada Wash, witch is a canyon-like region just north of Chaco Canyon in New Mexico. I spent time hiking and camping in that area and was overwhelmed by the geography and topography I encountered. One can see the land rising and dipping and eroding very clearly there. This sculpture is inspired by those overlapping geographic layers and plates which created the desert land forms is beheld.
