'Stone For My Mother And Her Mother'

This series of drawings continues to explore my mild obsession with ancient standing stones and the range of cultural contexts that surround them. Standing stones were erected by many ancient cultures across the planet, and across time spans longer than the existence of Christianity. They were put up by populations a fraction of the size of our modern communities, with tools and skills that almost defy belief.

Objectively, we do not know why they were put up. Some are obvious, others are entirely conjectural. But there are stones that mark out time - the passing of seasons, equinoxes and solstices, calendars, there are stones that stand as landmarks, waypoints, and others that serve as memorials and monuments. Some form structures and others stand isolated within the landscape.

These works will appeal to those interested in the history, the cultures, the landscapes and the people. To people who see beyond the surface of the image.

Materials used:

chalk, charcoal, oil pastel, graphite, acrylic, ink,
