band rock, the most recent series in the ROCKS IN MY HEAD body of work, is a creative inquiry that began with a small found stone. This tiny piece of the planet serves as a symbol of the recurring and interrelated themes of memory, the passage of time and the process of transformation. These mixed-media drawings playfully make apparent a relationship between nature’s ancient patterns in earth and water and the iconic designs that came into fashion during the transformative 60s and 70s – a period in the relatively recent past. As the drawings evolved, the individual pieces began to identify by colour and feeling with one season or another – further enhancing the expression of changes that occur as time passes. The mixed-media include chalk pastel, graphite and stitched on layers of mylar and paper.
