Rock and chalk

There is a time when I need to touch the primitive. To connect with another time.
My drawings of the susa banquet became involved in figures, body language and more superficial things. I must look back, back a long way. For this very purpose I have been visiting this rock for a long time, last time as I recall it was snowing, today was a glorious spring day. I take chalks with me to make simple emblems and symbols. I do not know the meanings, I just allow them to appear, I am a third party, watching an event, a manifestation. 
A sort of regeneration occurs here, a detox from the taint of commercialism.
