Concrete casts of rocks along the Maine coast capture the intricate and unique textures of place. The concrete has been mixed with collected natural material, soil, stones, seaweed, and other found items, which peak through the surfaces. These low-relief casts are an attempt by the artist to capture a landscape, an act fueled by nostalgia for place and a desire to understand the physical traits of the land.
