Though schooled in the philosophy and practice of Modernism I have always been drawn to ancient sources of knowledge with deep wells of wisdom that resonate in truth. In the recent decade, my work has developed around the primeval story in the stars as recorded from pre-Chaldean times. This body of work aims to depict the story as geological mapping, shaping the “fixed” nature of the stars referenced. This metaphor of stars as stone developed from an initial spark conceived by the relationship of starlight and color light from crystal formations.
