The phrase “living stone” has deep significance for me. Stone, a seemingly inert and humble material, holds a visual energy. My spirit is reminded of the Biblical reference of the “living stone”. I use a glazing technique to give a translucent surface. When looking deep into the surface, the viewer may see layering of embedded time. The musical term “étude” seems fitting in this instance. An étude is a short musical composition, usually for one instrument, designed to demonstrate and expand skill and technique. The instrument, in this case, is the brush; stone walls are the muse.
