“In order for any thing to exist, there must also be not that thing.”
“We perceive our existence in space and time; we are here now and life is current but in this world where technology is constantly advancing, human nature is not. It is often the values of the past that are most relevant today.”

Standing Bodhisattva Maitreya, the Buddha of the Future
The values to which Andrew Rogers inferred were to his Geoglyphs constructions. They are equally applicable, in my view, to form and art in general and;
“…can be contemplated from two points of view- the mythological subject and that of the beautifully constructed …… form which requires a concentration of great ingenuity to bring into being a form from which springs new life. We are carried over great time and space from ancient cultures and civilizations. It is an exploration of meanings and powers from the past and their meaning for the future. From an artefact of an ancient culture that has meanings and powers from the past, through to the unspoilt vistas that has meaning for the future.”

Form invites the onlooker to delve deeply within the image and in so doing;
“…create their own dimensions and find themselves in a special place that has been created.”
