In this three-dimensional, walk-through painting, Michael Abrams invites viewers to fully inhabit the world as he sees it—full of beauty, light, and atmosphere— and to share the trepidation he feels about its survival. He revisits and rediscovers the 19th-century vision of American wilderness and heroic landscape painting, but with a profound sense of respect for the natural world we are on the verge of losing through our long and historical embrace of manifest destiny.
