Stones are not mute. They record a rich history of human activity that is informed by place and geological origin. Once upon a time, I was a tapestry weaver., and interested in the warp-weighted looms used by weavers of Northern Europe, Iceland and the Faroe Isles. These upright looms, dating back to Neolithic times, used stones as weights to create tension in the warp threads.
The warp weight drawings are linked to the Entre dos Aguas paintings through similarities in medium and process. Graphite lines, watercolor and a liberal dispersing of paint with the spray bottle are the common elements. Looking back at my own history as an artist, I see that my passion for the language of stones has always been with me.
