The Artist - Philip Ross
Working in stone provides me with a medium I can morph from one shape into another; to make a sharp edge turn into a soft curve and create troughs and hollows that catch the light and shade. Stone provides the most tactile polished surface, sensual to touch. I am inspired by rock eroded by the action of the sea and sand, by structures inside sea shells and by tension and twists in tree trunks and their roots. My work reflects these natural forms and refines them.
