Jono Tew is a painter, living and working in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
"I loved the movement in the environment: the contours of the land, the winding roads, the wind in the clouds and trees. Rural New Mexico has a pastoral solitude unique unto itself. The passage of time doesn’t seem to have the same hold out here. Vintage trucks pass newer models on dusty roads. A tractor sits in the shade of a tree next to an old horse-drawn plow. Nowhere else have I witnessed the same humbling vastness of space coupled with the tiny reminders of human existence. What was originally planned as a few months stay turned into a permanent move." - Tew
