ABOUT THE WORK
"I started making these works in 2016 when I moved from rural Illinois to New York City. Initially, I used rocks from the creek in the cattle pasture. I had recently come out, and ironically, that creek was called Dick's Creek. In this process, I sculpt stucco around found rocks from various locations of meaning. The rocks used in this process remind me of the charms and objects used in memory jugs, which have historical significance in craft and folk movements." -Thomas Barger
