About the Art

This body of work is derived from landscapes, with interest in geology and man-made rock structures. The natural pebbles weathering daily, the ancient stacked stones that continue to settle, and the grand rock formations slowly moving with the earth’s crust all speak to the human experience of relationships. The daily wear of ourselves against others, how we affect one another, support each other, and how the lasting relationships deepen and settle into one unit all express what it means to relate to one another as humans. These ideas are presented through color: the red and black forms repeat throughout as “main characters,” like a story about a close relationship, but in no particular order. The oil pastel medium gives the forms a textured, solid, rock-like appearance. Lines meander throughout, connecting the forms and giving them expression. All the drawings are oil pastel and charcoal on oil paper.
