ARTIST STATEMENT

They say "time and tide wait for no man", but only the combination of time and the relentless cycling impact of water and wind can produce rock formations with shapes and patterns that defy obvious explanation.

Honeycomb weathering like this is called "tafoni". In geologic history, these rocks were crushed and distorted by fault movements, allowing minerals to percolate into cracks and crevices and harden, creating lines and areas which resisted erosion just slightly more than the surrounding material.

The result is a wonderland for the imagination, with alien landscapes, mysterious caverns and terrifying creatures around every corner.
