“What if the sun rode a bicycle? This question fired into my brain as I happened upon this new work parked at the Scottsdale Waterfront by John Randall Nelson … Or what if a cyclist rode so close to the sun that he or she merged with it? Either image works with this bright red bicycle sun porthole to the McDowell Mountains object almost pictograph thing.” John Romeo Alpha.
