Spirit Walk, 2005

Dan Blagg Image 1

DESCRIPTION: (30 feet x 180 feet) This work consists of a unique colorful floor design created by the artist and fabricated by an artisan skilled in terrazzo installation.

“The design was taken from a petrogliph from a cave in Arizona. It has a universal feel. It depicts night and day, man, an antelope, and what looked like a mountain lion to me. I am part [I]ndian and have always had some interest in that culture. I thought it would be interesting.”

Blagg is best known for his urbanscape paintings of warehouses, railyards and the outskirts of cities. Many of his works include streetscapes featuring signage and roadways. His creation for DFW Airport is a departure from the realism typically found in his work.

Jewel of the Day, 2005

DESCRIPTION: 30 feet x 180 feet) This work consists of a unique colorful floor design created by the artist and fabricated by an artisan skilled in terrazzo installation.

“The idea for this was completely out of the sky. I started with the cloud and experimented with what I could do. I settled on diamonds and raindrops. I thought they would be cool looking.

“For the whole project you almost had to put on a new brain from what I usually do. And at the same time make it interesting. I’ve never done anything like it in that size. It was a lot of fun and a nice break. It was a good challenge I wouldn’t have posed myself. It’s really been fun to watch it come together.”
