black granite
100mmH x 724mm Dia.

Series: X-figure

The minimalist black granite x enacts a state of constant multiplication through an ongoing display of shifting qualities and fleeting images. Interacting with movements of sky, water, weather and audience, the hand-polished stone sparkles in the sun, warms to touch, and casts deep shadows. It offers brilliant reproductions in miniature of people, plant-life, birds and scudding clouds.  An abstract figure and ancient rock form, x connects humanity and nature. Grounding and inclusive, personal and anonymous, the exponential qualities and symbolism of x make a diminutive work seem monumental.
