The Rock Series was born of my love of rocks; the colors, shapes, textures, and even the sound they make when moved about or knocked together. Rocks are tangible and solid and have remained in situ for eons. They are witnesses to history, and one can only imagine what narratives would unfold if rocks were to communicate.
A somewhat whimsical idea of cracking open a rock to release it’s memories led to the creation of cast paper rocks which open to reveal stories and images.
The use of paper to form rocks is a surprising contrast in materials. The addition of fiber and drawing media further enhance the dichotomy between hard and soft, and longevity versus transient materials.
