In this drawn and crocheted imaginary landscape, Taggart and Cooper bring together her use of crochet as drawn line and his fantastical detailed landscape. Along with a shared regard for the imaginative possibilities of mountain peaks, both were inspired by the exhibition of 17th century Chinese paintings at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, "The Artful Recluse: Painting, Poetry, and Politics in 17th-Century China." Many of the ideas in these works are of importance to them both, and continue to resonate in their individual works.
