Artist: Kimmerjae Johnson Lafayette, CO
Location: Festival Plaza
Materials: Glacier Granite (Salida)
Artists Statement: Stone. When I carve, or even think of carving stone, I feel my brainwaves shift. The energy in my body slows down, grounds itself and opens to what I experience as the voice and motion of Universe.
I am leaving the marks of the different chisels, faces where different quarrying machines and processes have caused the marble to break in different ways, telling us more about the nature of the rock. How it takes a polish is just one of these aspects. 2014 Interview with Kimmerjae Johnson 2013 Interview with Kimmerjae Johnson.
