Terratorium: Dessins à la Pointe de Métal


  • Musee Galerie Carnot 4 rue Carnot Villeneuve sur Yonne, Burgundy France (map)

Terratorium is an exhibition of metalpoint drawings that I have done over the past couple of years in Burgundy and adjacent areas, inspired by the Burgundian terroir, with its fossilized stones, bark, roots and vines, These fossilized stones contribute to the bright wonderful minerality of wines in Chablis, Côte St. Jacques and even Champagne. Finding such stones led me on a voyage of amazing discoveries and fascinations, which culminated in this series of drawings.
