The Petrograph Series

Aggressively frontal and monumental, part sheer rock and part artifact, the Petrographs in this series, with their rough awkward rhythms and turbulent embattled volumes, seem to me charged with a living vitality. To me they recall the stone carvings of Borneo in which incisions are cut into natural rock formations to liberate active forces thought to be dwelling within the body of the rocks. Thus, brought to their external surfaces, the rocks are believed to manifest greater power and presence.
