Abstract

My works emphasize the animistic qualities of extracted or displaced stones. This paper will explore my practice in relationship to practices of image reading, and drawing images within images, particularly rocks. I will use traditions of landscape painting, geological study, and Persian image making to talk about displacement of materials and stones.. I will explain how viewers can be trapped inside of the rock and my use of pastels, rock mediums, colored pencils, and my fingers to build these rocky landscapes.
