The first artistic act is to walk along the beach and pick the right pebble...
I believe that stone is not a dead material but animated, though at a very slow pace. When working with a pebble, I have respect for the enormous space of time it took for the rock to form and then to be shaped by the elements.
I am interested in nature and the marks humans have left on it. Visibly man- made. We might not necessarily be able to understand its meaning. But there is still an emotional response. A wall in a woodland, iron railings on a beach, cave paintings.
