This series was prompted by a spontaneous act of collecting, carrying and pouring rocks onto my studio floor. The physicality of this act brought awarenss to the importance of my body and the building of the form. Temporarily suspending my minds desire to analyize the purpose of this act, I established this as a part of my daily practice.
As the pile grew I began to make meditative ink drawings of them, deeping my relationship to the growing form. By working in sequence, the drawings captured how it changed over time and revealed the law of impermanence to me.
In the paintings, color began to present itself as a psychological element of commuincating the experince of creation and destruction and form and formlessness.
