The paintings of Anne Wehrley Björk are inspired by the ruins of the Anasazi

people of Chaco Canyon. The Anasazi Indians, ancestors of the modern Pueblo

Indians, also known as the “Ancient Ones,” inhabited Chaco Canyon from around

AD 200 to AD 1300. Björk’s early experience growing up in northwest New Mexico

near Chaco Canyon has been a catalyst for her art in recent years.

 

Bjork’s large abstract works incorporate acrylic paint and graphite on raw canvas.

With angular lines, arches and shapes in muted colors, they make a dynamic

statement about the monumental landscape and iconic symbols of the mystical

ruins of the ancient Anasazi Indians in Chaco Canyon.
