Soft rocks, glittering treasures from the forest floor. It is a simple act to stop and reach down to grab a rock, a flower or a little something we-don’t-know-what-it-is but it is shinny, colourful and has a curious shape that calls to us. We hold this new found treasure in the palm of our hand and our imagination starts to run wild and free. We contemplate and get absorbed into a strange world, a fantastic reality. Little faces appear from an abstract pattern and these objects become alive before our eyes. My intent is to call the inner child in each of us that has pockets full of cherished little nothings. When was the last time you sat down and spent hours looking at a rock and wondered about where it comes from or why is it so pretty? - Aurélie Guillaume
