Priya Pereira: STONE

  priya-pereira-stone-1.jpg (86851 bytes)   priya-pereira-stone-2.jpg (75046 bytes)   

Stone was inspired by Irving Stone’s ‘The Agony and the Ecstasy’ on the life and
times of Italian sculptor Michelangelo Buonarroti.  The book takes a circular journey
starting and ending with the same page - ‘He was in love with stone.’  While the white
pages are passages from the book, the grey pages are sort of a précis of the white pages.

Artist statement: While I saw stone as a cold and callous object, Michelangelo described it
as fruit and meat and as light and living. I did change my point of view.  2005
