Flight was created in response to a call for art inspired by the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve in southeastern Ontario, Canada. For this piece as well as others in the “Origins” series, I obtained granite, sandstone, and limestone — sawn on one side — from a quarry near Seeley’s Bay; I took the photographs of rock, water, and sky along the Thousand Islands Parkway between Brockville and Lansdowne.
From a distance, the marks on the rock look as if they’ve always been there.
