For many this book will alter how they see Kansas. Robert Sudlow approaches painting as a sort of communion, one that draws the viewer into his meditation upon the reality of nature. His paintings celebrate and exalt the Kansas landscape by making the commonplace luminous, by transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. No photorealist, Sudlow seeks to capture on canvas the transience of natural events like scudding clouds, blustery winds, melting snow, and waning light. He paints fields, ditches, ponds, dirt roads, hedgerows, streams, hills, and farmhouses. In his work one senses Sudlow's joy in his struggle to fuse the disparate forces of nature and to communicate his sense of the place. A native Kansan, Sudlow has refined that sense through a lifetime of closely observing his environment, and those who share his vision will see Kansas afresh. -- from back cover.
