So Amanda, why was Marfa such an inspiration for you on an artistic level?
“As an artist, Marfa was a pilgrimage for a lot of my peers and other artists – that’s how it’s viewed in the art world. I was prepared for that art aspect of it with its different arts foundations, but just the aesthetics of the city alone, despite any overarching art aspect, I found really captivating.
“It’s one town where I really love how the rundown southwestern vibe is mixed with the built-up southwestern modernism vibe. Just walking around, you can be engaged in one time period to another, architecturally speaking, and that’s something I wasn’t expecting. For me, it’s the fact that Marfa is not only this art pilgrimage but also this really beautiful austere landscape where the light is just another element drawing you to be there.”
