“Those who look for the laws of Nature as a support for their new works collaborate with the creator.” Antoni Gaudí
Nathaniel Mary Quinn’s singular approach to portraiture is both highly associative and autobiographical, and includes family and friends, teachers, neighbors, and interlopers. While tradition has a subject “sit” for a portrait, Quinn’s figures emerge from his own unresolved memory and vision. Thus the work is fueled by intuition, empathy and spirituality, where he aims to “lay down the sensation and opaqueness of my relationships.” - his paintings have an esoteric quality to them. Love them.

Travelers along U.S. Highway 191 in Southwestern Utah are amazed to discover this historic 5,000 square foot home which began taking shape almost a century ago by the Christensen family. What began as a small alcove for the young Christensen boys to sleep in at night grew into a man-made engineering marvel 20 years in the making with 50,000 cubic feet of excavated sandstone from the rock.. A fireplace with a 65' chimney, 14 rooms arranged around huge pillars and a deep bathtub built into the rock delight visitors who stop by this most unusual home in the desert.
