Marnie Powers-Torrey: "This two-sided accordion is an homage to the diverse and awe-inspiring rocks found in Utah and to the stories, both historical and geological, that they tell. The warm intaglio prints imbed the intensity of the desert landscape midday, and the letterpress images present the artist's reflection on rocks as the desert cools."
