'‘Sticks and Stones’' works on paper

“Sticks and Stones” works on paper are the result of my involvement with the Mojave and Death Valley desert. With the motivation of an Native American poem about choices in the spirit world, a number of activities were created about “placement”. Using various studio made “props”, I sought to inhabit and examine a seemingly placid location as the desert and re-align sticks and stones to present this “world” within a “world” preset of location of “spirits”.
