create an artwork in the landscape a look behind the ovious and
clearly visible nature of a place in the enviroment is required. The
esthetic, almost existing informations of the place must be
perceived: strikingly shaped boulders or trees, excerpts from the
landscape wich appear particularly symetric and harmonic, atmospheric
conditions, the incidence of light that determines the quality of the
picture that is shot as soon as the artwork is completed. This
information is giving visibility by the work of art. It seems to have
grown out of the place, its an ephemeral appearance, a condensation
of the creative possibilities at this point in time.
The work "Framed Stones" is part of a series of works that emphasizes on highlightning the structures of stones in different natural environments and using different materials. The work "Framed Stones" was made using stripes of maple leaves attached with water on a primer of dark and very compact mud. This tecnique emphasizes the edges and corners of the stones but at the same time the real structure becomes unreal because of the graphic transformation. The stones no longer seem to belong to this place where they always have been immovable. It´s an ephemeral, artistic intervention on a material wich is actually unchangeable - unless you would use heavy tools - with the tough that the stone will regain its original form as soon as the sun or the wind dries out mud and leaves or rain washes all the used materials away.
