Above + Below Land forms

Catherine Rogers

April 5 2019

"Civilization exists by geological consent, subject to change without notice.”

Will Durant

American writer, historian, philosopher and teacher

The land forms and re-forms. It is made and re-made. It constructs and de-constructs. It is in constant flux as it shifts and changes around us, whether across the ages or in a matter of moments by sheer force and determination.

Forms are re-imagined through weathering processes to create new structures, layers, patterns, marks and textures. Cracks, fractures and rifts appear, coming to the fore. They indicate a sense of fragility, instability or precariousness, sometimes contradicting the great strength of these forms as a whole.

Rock, particularly that of dolerite abounds on our island home. It rises above us like grand pillars of strength. Below us lie the bodies of diverse geological forms and abundant mineral deposits scattered all around.

Above + Below: Land forms is a series of linocut prints that explore these forms, some ‘real’ but (mostly) imagined.
