Minerals – A Series of Mixed Media Artworks by Rebecca Rothfus


Minerals is a series of mixed media artworks by Rebecca Rothfus:

 “Most recently, I have turned my curiosities downward toward the untouched, hidden parts of our landscapes.  In this current body of work I am exploring mineral and rock formations created over long periods of time, in the ground beneath us.  When examined closely, these crystal structures, though naturally derived, have the look and feel of engineered objects.  They appear to be miniature landscapes of their own; microscopic drafts of what was or what might be ahead.   Though I have shifted my subject matter towards mineral formations, the inquiry remains consistent:  What gives an object the sense that it is not of this world?  What makes something simultaneously beautiful and foreign to its surroundings?”
