The Art and Illustration of William Sillin
Artist in Residence, Zion National Park, Oct-Nov 2020
"Such scenes can cause people to stop in their tracks, transfixed by the intense sense of longing and beauty, determined to explore that valley, to see where the road leads. We are what we are today because our primordial ancestors followed paths and riverbanks over the horizon. At such moments we confront remnants of our species' ancient past." Dennis Dutton, 2009, "The Art Instinct"

"In an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, the awful scene is before us." Clarence Dutton, 1881, on reaching the north rim of the Grand Canyon.

"We find no vestige of a beginning, no prospect of an end." Thomas Hutton, 1788, on observing the strata at Siccar Point, Scotland.
