Rock Art



One of the art fascinations I have concerns rock art; whether petroglyphs
 pictographs, assemblages etc.  The idea of the artist working rock to
record, evoke magic or express is a powerful stimulation.  Mostly
we don't know the why of the creation; in many instances the artist 
and his/her culture has faded.  We are left with a mystery and speculation.
I decided to create my own petroglyph after taking some photos of rock
formations overlooking the Connecticut river.  I combined one of those 
images with a photo of old machinery that I reduced to line drawings.
I hope there is some magic in deciphering the image.  I printed this on
13x19 Canon Photo Pro paper.
