Joining the rocks in my head body of work, the before and after series is also based on small found stones. How one face of a rock came to be so dramatically different from its other side remains a mystery and speaks so clearly about the passage of time and the process of transformation. And just as the marks and scars on an aging human body tell something of its journey, the rocks’ inlays, imprints and remnants of long-ago life forms allude to a wondrous and complex narrative of how the earth formed. These small stones hold secrets, memory and wisdom. They are the ground. The title before and after also references notions about representation by toying with scale and by contrasting over-sized realistic renderings of both sides of the same stone with patterns created by playfully configuring shapes of the actual-sized rocks.
