Series :: "Hard and Soft of It"
Read about this series.
For many years I have been fascinated by the interaction of soft plants and rocks. Sometimes I have observed how a tree or even a small plant will grow in the crack of a rock and may eventually accomplish the breaking of that rock. This series exemplifies how plants, water and rocks interact and change each other in the process. The initial images were drawn, reversed and placed under a gelatin plate. Inks were applied and printed. After the prints dried, I applied pastel and graphite to complete the images.
