Rocks and boulders have always intrigued me, especially those that are worn smooth by the ocean, recording their journey on their worn surface. This body of work began with photographs I had taken of large boulders that sit on the beach in Block Island. They stand strong, year after year, as watchman to the human destruction of the earth.
The works in this series explore our natural world through an altered perspective, drawing attention to concerns of climate change, deforestation and our deteriorating environment. Employing the techniques of mold making, I slip cast sculptures I created of the rocks in my photographs, altering the perspective from landscape to wallscape, I engage a variety of materials with clay to express various environmental concerns.
Works to come include printmaking and a photographic survey of a “landscape” mapping time.
