On the same page.
Mari Andrews's work several times before, I never realized just how many other natural materials she was using besides stone. Her artist statement slays me. "I transform the materials used in these sculptural drawings to bring attention to fragile and often fugitive objects that might otherwise go unnoticed." Fragile and often fugitive objects... gets me every time. Also: "Time spent gathering, cleaning and storing of collected objects, whether they are man-made or natural, allows for a kind of wonder and intimacy with each object." YES. Her work and mine have a lot of similarities. As does our mindset.
