Art Rocks!! #5
These rock strata are not placed by natural forces – but by an imaginary force intrigued by the rhythm created when like shapes are placed next to one another, then contrasted with unlike shapes. Metallic paints coexist with these imaginary rocks as precious metals exist with real rocks and soil. Some rocks look to be “sun-kissed”. Are these rocks nestled under, or above the ground? Ancient and enduring rocks remind us that nature is precious, that each rock is unique, just as we are each precious and unique. Rock studies are familiar sources for imagery and playful rendition by the artist.
