“By introducing figures associated with the violence of conquest and by working to extend the perception of the landscape beyond geographical limitations, De Maria prepares, unbeknownst to us, the apparition in plain sight of what is unfurling, at the same time, on the other side of the Pacific. Not a saloon shootout, which miraculously leaves its protagonists unharmed, but the Vietnam War.” (Antoine Thirion)
