My process of collecting stones is a repetitive ritual, often taking place during walks along the Opal Coast in France or by the Scheldt in Antwerp. Picking up these stones is more than just a physical act—it’s also about making an invisible connection with the objects themselves. I collect stones that I’m drawn to because of their shape, structure, or morphology. The stones I choose become a part of me and serve as a foundation for the stories I create.B.D
This book will take you on a special journey where the author connects deeply with the small and precious things of nature. Decruyenaere collects stones with interesting shapes and textures and transforms them into works of art that highlight the beauty of nature.
"Understanding the Landscape" is not just a book, it's a mixture of nature observation and personal thoughts. It's about looking at ordinary things in a special way and finding a safe haven in the chaos of a big city.
