I feel that most everything in this world is alive with some kind of conscious energy or presence. Stone seems endowed with an extraordinary quality of this energy. Finding gesture or the structure of a face in this substance, I am in part discovering something about this energetic presence.
Creatures are highly sensitive to the subtleties of faces, expressions. In an infinitely variable potentiality of features and their spatial relations, in carving a particular one I often feel that I am exploring the very character of Space itself.
Emerging now are Buddha-like presences in stone that call to our compassion and wisdom while having the vitality of a sense of potential mischief or humor. They are imbued with my ecstatic love for the character of each peace of our great rock, Earth.
