These works were inspired through a creative conversation with sculptor David Jensz. We formed our conversation around objects of mutual attraction; river stones. Stones convey time, location, geology and endurance. A stone, once selected, can speak to our humanness as first tool (or even weapon). Through the use of steel we imbue the solitary natural stones with significance through metaphor and context. I question relationships between cultural and natural spaces, with particular reference to rural and landscape settings. David invests the stones he selects with the feel of a readymade and through the use of steel and geometry he explores interconnections between energy and matter.
