Ontogeny Recapitulates Phylogeny

Ancient Rock

1. Intro

Hiking in the Malibu Canyon Creek in 1997, this Ancient Rock, possibly a Meteorite, connected with me in such a compelling manner that it became a part of my artistic exploration into the unknown.

Photographing it from seven different positions, it exposed these hidden images that I spent the next three years capturing in sculpture and relief. All the seven initial images, from the Embryo to the Crone, were from the original photographs. The only alteration was in the presentation that I created to portray the unique impact and discovery of the seven stages of man.

They are intriguing, not only to myself, but to anyone who views them.
