Stonelicker (Rotary Twist Knot)
200 250 $200.00 - $250.00
Stonelickers is a series that includes several works relating to parasitic relationships and their potential as a model for artistic production and cultural exchange. The drawings for this permutation of the series are based on images of the mouth and teeth of several species of Lamprey. The name Lamprey comes from Latin 'Lampare-petra' roughly translated as 'Stone-Lickers.' These are juxtaposed with images of rotary tools used for grinding stone and metal creating a relationship between teeth used to shape flesh and tools used to shape stone.
Each Drawing is Hand drawn in archival ink and signed and dated by the artist.
