New Zealand Sculpture Onshore — 2014

The minimalist black granite enacts a state of constant multiplication through an unending display of shifting qualities and fleeting images. Interacting with movements of sky, water, weather and audience, the polished stone sparkles in the sun, warms to touch, and casts deep shadows. It reflects, in miniature, 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.
