Re: What's your intension as an artist?
My intention is clear to me.
I continue to explore each stone to manifest the form most influential to the stone's charactor as it applies to: color, texture, grain, and any preconceived forms I wish to bring into it's creation. Exploring new asymetrical styles that are expressive of non-contrived or modeled perceptions, prior to the execution of the process I find very creative. It's an exploratative process, not always used, but particularly applicable to stones with rich color and texture ( pure, single color, stones are mostly emulated from drawings).
The exploratative process is the most exhilarating and stimulating to the creative process for ME.
