Country Rock Group – 2023
Oil on canvas. H41 x W78 cm
Petrified wood specimens from the district form this ‘Rock Group’. Set against a strobic atmospheric backdrop, the unusual spatial relationship of the discreet ‘players’ is a metaphor for how groups or communities are formed. Like these tree examples, we start out in one form – them metamorphose into another. interactively we perform and creatively communicate in either a harmonious or discordant manner.
Petrified rocks date to the pre-historic period and as trees were amongst the earliest forms of life in this geographic area.
