Elements and Textures in the Anatomy of the Land.

Veryan Thrust

Sometimes it is not the obvious things that get recorded, and what goes on below the surface of the ground, unseen by us, continues to fascinate me.  I assembled this work with 25 pieces of cut and polished pebbles to show off the wonderful interior patterns of quartz veins in slate.  The resulting imagery reminds me of streaks of lightning, and for me, represents the violent shifts in geological processes that imparts a unique fingerprint on the landscape – a sort of geological DNA.  Oh, and Happy Christmas to anyone out there who should be opening your presents and not reading my post!
