Turtle Rock

Turtle rock is a sculpture created by nature.

The artist did not carve this stone but found it, partly hidden underground. When she uncovered it and brushed away the leaves that hid its sides, she discovered that the large rock resembled a turtle, emerging from under the earth. The imprint of ferns and tree bark can be seen on the turtle’s shell, and its head and feet are visible except when covered by autumn leaves.

Turtle Rock now marks a junction between the natural sanctuary of the woods and The Forms, the installation that follows, in which plexiglass shapes allude to the basic building blocks of the constructed world.
