“Whether it’s cellular biology or the study of the Cosmos my work has always been deeply influenced by nature.  Something as simple as a rock on the ground or looking through a telescope can help provided us with the necessary information we need to discover our planet’s age and help us understand our own human’s origins.  I am hoping the viewer will see these pieces as markings of my own personal journey and my chance to leave behind things of great mystery and beauty much like the things that have inspired me from nature.”  – Curtiss Brock
