I hope that "Unearthed" sets the viewer to thinking about all the evidence of Man's creative expression still to be discovered and still to be linked with our own contemporary history. This piece is part of my rusted series on ancient messages that deals with the remains of culture, art and language we see and re-discover around the world. Being Lithuanian-born and having Sanskrit as the closest ancestral link to my native language, has brought another special meaning to me and an appreciation of the artistry of surviving written mark-making on stone, scrolls and ruins. I try to inform my own marks with this sense of ancestral history, survival and connectedness, both in the design of the work and in the vary process and materials of making.
