Walking Looking Talking Noppan Nukkan Yunnan

Artist Statement This is what people do on Granite Island. And these rocks, under an old tree, provide a moment’s refuge to contemplate ‘then’ and ‘now’. An ancient practice, painting on rocks, about what’s important. The paint will fade and disappear in time, making space for something new, just as with all living things.
