KIM WIG­GINS: Flee­ing Hell’s Fury

Western Art Collector - - VISUAL FEAST -

“Flee­ing Hell’s Fury speaks vol­umes to the wild and dan­ger­ous life of the early Amer­i­can cow­boy. Noth­ing struck fear into his heart like an on­com­ing range fire driven by fierce winds or the stam­pede that en­sued,” says artist Kim Wig­gins. “Dark de­mons and fiery ser­pents seem to pur­sue and al­most over­shadow this panic-stricken band, yet they fight on rid­ing hard as they pur­sue the path to safety, know­ing only rain fall­ing from the dark­ened sky above can quench the on­com­ing flames.” This ma­jor new work from Wig­gins will be avail­able at the Masters of the Amer­i­can West ex­hi­bi­tion at the Autry Mu­seum of the Amer­i­can West.
