Twenty Imaginary Standing Stones is a book of fictions. Originally begun as a response to the traditional drawn documentation of Chinese Gonshi or scholar’s rocks, the drawings became a body of pictures produced in part as documentation of themselves as much as an attempt to represent the variousness of objects. They are a kind of metaphor for the unknowability of things in nature. But they are also about history and time; they refer to standing stones, flint tools and cairns. They can’t help but be about human attempts to confront their place within nature.
