Standing Stones
The Standing Stone series (1998) features geometric apertures hewn into monolithic blocks of black granite and steatite. The aperture in a Standing Stone creates a frame within the stone itself, so that the observer becomes conscious of the roughness of the natural surfaces and the primeval aspect of a stone torn from the earth. A new lightness is established, in balance with the grounded mass of the surrounding stone.
