“Set in Stone” – Roynae Mayes

Roynae Mayes engraves ruminations on deep time into stones.  These stones are left about the site of Testing Grounds, these stones are gifts to passers-by, these stones make their way into the surrounding environment to be stumbled upon by some aimless wanderer.  These stones came before the engraver, these stones outlast the engraver.

These stones were her ancestor’s first tools.  These stones are pieces of the beginning of earth’s time.  These stones are the silent witnesses of violent bursts of energies, forceful compressions, and micro erosions.
