Between 324 and 350 million years ago carcasses of marine life accumulate on the bed of a shallow sea, creating a thick layer of sedimentary limestone. Subsequent orogenous uplift events reposition the rock layer to 9300 feet above sea level, and through contact metamorphism, crystallize the limestone to marble.
Exposed rock faces that have been cut, drilled, scratched, carved into and left to weather, erode and develop an environmental patina have always fascinated me. These multiple processes hint of layered timescales, of histories both ancient and contemporary, and often become inspirations for the paintings I do.
