March 2012 - The Grand Canyon Expedition - William Phillips

Drift the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon and you enter a cathedral that could
only have been built by the hand of God. It is a journey of an infinite variety of colors
and hues, where no view or form is ever duplicated. Here, on the cool running river, the
enormity and splendor of this great creation is revealed anew with every wind and turn.
With "The Grand Expedition" William S. Phillips gives us a spectator’s view a John Wesley
Powell encampment on one of his expeditions through the uncharted canyons of this
American treasure. Powell passed down this watercourse twice, first in 1869, then
again in 1871-1872. He and his crews did so in specially designed dories that were state
of the art designs for the day. Today, the idea shooting the rapids of the uncharted
Colorado in these tiny vessels inspires as much awe as the Canyon’s views themselves.

“There is nothing more majestic to behold than the Grand Canyon at sunset,” asserts
Phillips. “You begin with those stripes of horizontal color, layers upon layers of limestone
to sandstone to granite. Throughout the day, as the sun transverses the sky, their colors
change from instant to instant but nothing is more brilliant than when the low sun strikes
the great walls and stone faces at day’s end.”

Shapes, forms and colors rise and fall in countless arrays throughout William S. Phillips’
The Grand Expedition. This artwork is available as both a 33” x 22” MasterWork™ Fine
Art Canvas in an edition of only 25 or as a regular sized 28” x 16” Fine Art Canvas in
an edition of 50. Each of these magnificent works of art captures a momentary glimpse
of history and beauty that can only be found in the great American southwest.
