Landscape artist Tobi Clement lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico surrounded by the expansive landscape and stunning skies of the Southwest. For Tobi there is a soul-grabbing intensity in the colors of the sky and an alluring mystery to the light during twilight. She senses the magic in this in-between time when the light of day merges with the dark of night.
For the Scottish, twilight, or as they say “twylicht” or half-light, is the in-between time when the light of day merges with the dark of night. Throughout history and across many cultures, myths declare this special time to be a brief but potent time for magic when one can cross the elusive border dividing the mundane world from supernatural realms.
Spellbound by myth, Tobi attempts to capture the dynamic in-between time when light and dark meet. Their dynamic interlude summons up the breathtaking panoramas witnessed in the skies of the Southwest.
