Exhibition with painter Douglas Degges. I brought to the table 10 steel suns and 12 stones from the beaches of West Michigan. The stones (gneiss, gowganda tillite, granite, basalt) are varieties of igneous and metamorphic rocks that were arrived in Michigan via glacial transport during the most recent ice age. The suns reference Red Giants, a final phase of a star’s life, and are painted with an iron oxide (rust) pigment to allude to the iron expelled by dying stars.
