2000Site Specific Work: Mexican Rocks
'Expanding Boundaries Exploring Clay'
Watershed New Castle, maine, USA
The collaboration group with Tunick, Nadler and Jetten has staged some guerilla pieces. They reapplied clay to the farmer's stones and painted one hot pink and the other bright blue.
One of the things that I really noticed from the first pieces was how one really appreciates the subtleties of the natural rocks, the crags and fissures, the varieties of coloration and the lichens on the surface.
Jetten says that the group learned to actualize the idea in order to make decisions and move forward with the project at hand. Just thinking or theorizing about the site and piece just isn't enough.Forrest Snyder, Critical Ceramics
