“The movement of stones”“The movement of stones”
by David Ralston
Over recent years my art practice has focused on constructed and engineered objects. These have taken different forms, primarily automata and clocks. My concerns in making these works were ideas of decay, ruin and the nature of time.
In 2007 I began a series of sculptures in rock, I am now exploring and developing concepts of latency, relative time and the realignment of nature.
This significant development in my work takes my practice into different realms, creating objects by reduction rather than construction.
