“Six West”, a new oil on canvas by Robert Cocke is an otherworldly landscape that chronicles his fascination with the environment. In this 36×36 inch painting, the southwestern desert seems to exist in a science fiction world. Highly detailed, and carefully painted, the landscape is filled with mounds and dotted with rocks. Whether created by man or natural elements, the artist leaves to our imagination. Curious plants seem to thrive in the harsh climate while striking cloud formations float on the horizon and above, casting shadows on this beautiful but mysterious land under the benevolent gaze of an eclipsing moon.
