AUTHOR

Quasha, George, Ratcliff, Carter

SUMMARY

George Quasha' s extraordinary sculptures unite natural stones in a state of breathtakingly improbable balance. The stones are not altered physically or bonded in any way; rather, Quasha discovers an unknown axis that brings them into radical alignment. The stones " learn" this state of levity in contrast to their ordinary state of gravity, resulting in a new art form that feels alive with its own individual energy and personality. Here, 37 axial stones are displayed in dazzling full-page color photos. The accompanying text explains not only how the stones were found and eventually came together, but explores the aesthetic, philosophical, spiritual, and practical implications of an art of danger and impermanence. " Action pages" document the process-- the repeated setting up, balancing, losing balance, and falling-- until the full axial stone is born: a whole being greater and more real than the sum of its parts.Quasha, George is the author of 'Axial Stones An Art of Precarious Balance' with ISBN 9781556435751 and ISBN 1556435754.
