NOTE: For the past several years I have spent hours observing moving waters in rivers, lakes, oceans and seas. This process has often guided my travels. I have become captivated by the way they disclose their secret anatomy, by their life force, by their continuous rhythms of movement and transformation and by the way they capture and reflect light.
“Movement, chance, light, growth and decay are the life-blood of nature… When I work with a leaf, rock, stick, it is not just the material in itself, it is the opening into the process of life within and around it.When I leave it, these processes continue.”
