Rock Balancing-Meditative Sculpture

Peter Riedel

Created from rock and stone, these free-standing structures attract the attention of the passerby. Their unexpected appearance and aura of calm and balance strike a chord with all who come upon them. Challenged by wind and water, their existence is short. Within hours or maybe days, the balanced pieces are gone, collapsing back into their surroundings. Riedel’s transient sculptures contradict the permanence of traditional art.
