Michael Workman
Utah based artist Michael Workman uses soft edges, rough shapes and muted value contrasts to cast his depictions of the plains, mountains and farmland of his home state in a quiet, poetic naturalism.

His compositions, which sometimes walk the line between abstraction and representation, are often strongly geometric, perhaps owing in part to his early role as an architectural illustrator.

I particularly enjoy those works in which his subjects alternately dissolve into the background and resolve into more definite shapes, allowing your eye to fill in more detail than is actually present.
