Observations (in the raw)
I am starting to marvel at quality of concrete. In my pursuit of a solution for steps to the studio, I am becoming quite familiar with its workings. It is labor intensive. It is demanding of both the body and the mind. But when I think in the end, I am in essence creating stone, it is somewhat amazing. (I do not know the history of concrete. I must research that...) And, of course, my mind wonders at its possibility as a sculptural medium. I have seen some concrete sculptures that were quite intriguing. There is an artist I met a couple of years ago from the Jemez mountains, who comes to mind. Beautiful work. I must do some experimenting.
Pat Greenwell is an artist. A painter and sometimes poet, he has been searching the New Mexico desert for several years now, looking for lost possibilities and probable intentions.
