Ancient Future Series

 

 

“The concept of infinite space that contains objects of mass whether it be rock, ice or gases is a fascinating reality.  It’s one of those things that we think we understand but remains mysterious. The presence of energy, lack of gravity, comets racing through space or giant spheres orbiting one another is something dreams are made of. Tension is a constant in the fact that one action causes a reaction.

 

In my most recent work I am revisiting a series I started 10 years ago.  A timeless odyssey of perpetual rock created by some unknown cosmic event as it travels through time and space resulting in unexpected fictional consequences and symbols of communication.  I sense an element of tension in each piece whether it be defying gravity or pressure between weight and space. Yet there is almost a meditative quality as one allows themselves to enter into the profound silence.

 

I have used a combination of  mixed media to create these paintings including applying sand on some of the rocks giving them a life like dimensional quality. In some instances I have placed a cryptic shape, symbol or monolith resulting in a shocking paradox of the ancient and the futuristic.”

THE LOG a short film shot on location at Ghost Wolf Ranch. Click on image below or view on youtube - The Log - No Horse Films.  
 

This is a story of the struggle of a lone homesteader enduring the difficult task of gathering firewood.  Everyday is a new challenge on the frontier.

 

It is my first attempt creating a movie with music.  I have always wanted to explore the art of film making. 
Inspired by the creativity of David Lynch and other film makers has helped me to venture forward.  With a limited budget and simple film equipment the challenge was difficult. 
 

It has been said "Caution is the enemy of Art" so I proceeded with love and passion.  

 

The hardship for a lone homestead women in the 1800's to obtain firewood was purely based on survival. 
I shot at my "Ghost Wolf Ranch" and the town of  "No Horse".  I wanted to visually portray one such event, 
the search and the physical struggle, the inner voice of frustration and determination, the triumph and thoughts of the future ahead.

I'm grateful for the discovery of the musical artists I have mentioned in the credits which really set the mood for this film. 
 

I hope you enjoy it and gain an artful moment and appreciation of connecting with nature. 
"Keep The Spirit"
Rocky
