The suggestion of folded hills in this picture relates directly to a photograph by Edward Weston titled Panamints [a mountain range in Death Valley National Park]. I was fascinated when I saw this work in the book California and the West in the late 1940s à when I shot my Landscape Nude 1 perhaps my subconscious was directing the photography.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
