The supersaturated photos of sunsets published by Arizona Highways magazine (circa late 1970s) is what helped motivate my parents to immigrate to Arizona rather than to Australia — our most promising choices due to the positioning of relatives that got out of then Czechoslovakia before the borders closed. We had to escape. These sunsets represented the utopian American freedom. I’m drawn to this pretense of perfection. I use the color white because it stands for goodness and interference gold because it’s the most commercial color.
