The Medicine Bow Suite was drawn from the rugged landscape of the Medicine Bow, Snowy Range and Vedauwoo regions of South Eastern Wyoming. The landscape in that vacinity is varied from desert to high mountain glaciers and is spectacular country, often remote, difficult and dangerous. Guerin photographed thousands of images over a fifteen year period here, achieving a unique approach to interpreting the land.
Guerin's approach in this suite was on abstraction, light and the passage of time. Each frame of these multi paneled paintings captures abstract imagery in nature in a moment in time and of light that contributes to the full composition. Each reflects the passage of time as captured on a single camera frame from one panel to the next. These Photo Realist images as compared to traditional landscape painting, consciously reflect the influences of modernism; abstraction, futurism and minimalism; and the optical contributions of cameras and lenses to produce landscapes unlike the tradition of American landscape painting.
