9780856676123: Art at the Rockface: The Fascination of Stone

This book examines the principal ways by which artists have explored the fascination and meaning of stone. At times a belief in the sacred has informed artists' desire to make art, often making symbols for worship. Today artists are among those inspired to explore form and meaning in ways that invite a contemplative and sometimes explicit spiritual response. Equally, other non-spiritual themes remain common to different cultures, notably those of study or transformation, myth and memory, all fundamental to our sense of ourselves.

Conceived as a companion to the exhibition Art at the Rockface (Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery and the Millennium Galleries, Sheffield, 2006-7) , six thematic chapters echo those of the exhibition.
