Recurrent Journey by Mark Herrington from Maine. Granite, 2009

Artist Statement

There are many things we do that seem to be built within patterns we establish. We walk down many paths again and again. We redo experiences with new people and new places. In that process we get new views and perspectives that keep us moving forward and discovering new parts of the journey.

I was thinking of these things as I was working on this piece. I was trying to get the progression between the elements balanced and coherent. I did not have a clear end in sight. I was in the journey.
