GEODES
 
 
 
YOU KNOW GEODES; they're those rocks with a cavity lined with crystals and other mineral matter. It occured to me that these vessles make a wonderful analogy for you and I. On the outside, they're kind of pedestrian. Even banal, in most cases. Some have attractive lumps and bumps, to be sure. For the most part, though, you could walk right passed one and not even notice it. But on the inside—whoa! Inside you'll find a wonderous, uniquely beautiful, multi-faceted universe. It's been percolating for millennia, becoming its singular self regardless of whether anyone will ever see it. So you have to wonder, why does this inside exist? What's providing its motivation? What force is guiding it and nudging it along despite the slim chances of ever being seen? All I know is getting to what's inside geodes and us is hard work. You have to bust open whatever exterior is protecting it. That's the work I've been doing with my art. Or, perhaps more likely, the work my art has been doing on me; trying to get to whatever it is inside that is pushing me to make it. Ideally to celebrate the inner worlds in all of us. In this display, one photo of each Geode is followed later in the file with multiple views and details. Each piece  shares a story that has formed and grown inside me secretly but is now pushing to get out. Doubtless, there'll be many more to come.
