“Icebergs, rocks, and mountains compile their history in hidden layers that I find visually stunning. Beneath the surface, the patterns of these layers are the history of their changes. I presume they are accidental, but they appear deliberate, almost architectural. As abstract interpretations of these geological forms, my recent ink and pencil drawings explore the relationships between structure and spontaneity, and between nature and design. In the mixed media pieces, I have pursued similar themes, with the use of different materials and methods.” - R. L.
