About Marking with charcoal, with stone and Water..., artist Greg Patch

I'm working with charcoal with stones, rivers and with Earth … with being with alignment with the energies I sense with the space and place, the time of day and seasons as continuum... these moments of drawing express marks of our collective connection with our universal matrix, or fractal... using charcoal speaks to my consideration that before I make a mark to do no harm and act with accord... I use charcoal from stone circle wood fires local to each site... charcoal is elemental with all life and is a filtering and cleansing substance... as that I see my use with it as healing with homeopathic perspective applications as a remedial toward healthier animal and plant balances and as symbolic energetically... rain, rivers, water, etc. transfer into the broader Waters connecting with rivers and eventually are absorbed with Earth, Air ... the primal markings are of a pre literate and/or post literate form, similar to early writing and petroglyphs...

with over 4,100 miles traveled, over 1,000 sites drawn/marked along 34 rivers and creeks, over 250 cities/towns and with 7 Eastern US states since 7/27/2016 (1/1/21)... each drawing I've done along the rivers connect with the others... from the Deerfield and Connecticut rivers with MA & VT, Hudson River and Kinderhook Creek, Mohawk River, Normanskill Creek, Wallkill River, Roundout Creek, the Esopus and Catskill, Claverack, Agawamuck, Basic, Kaaterskill, Papscanne. Punsit, Schoharie Creeks and Valatie Kill, Kline Kill/Stone Kill and Mordimer Kill with NY, Housatonic and Naugatuck Rivers with MA and CT, Hoosic River with MA, VT & NY, and Delaware and Susquehanna Rivers in Northeast US... and French Broad River with NC and TN with the Southeast and Big Laurel Creek, Swananoa River, Spring Creek, Crossings and Upper Shad Creeks with NC... Pigeon River, Little Pigeon, Wolf and Birds Creeks, Nolichuckey, Tennessee and Holston Rivers with TN... looking at the larger matrix on a map we can see a larger drawing emerged as a mark allowing us a visual fractal experience...

this small scale large scale project needs funding and with support from people and small paybacks from Social Security I continue this journey... I have several Youtube videos, a blog, http://www.gregpatch.blogspot.com and Facebook page, http://www.gregpatch.blogspot.com that I maintain daily with new work with travels that I experience with various writings about the place where the markings and the photos are done... ie. Kinderhook (where the children play) Creek https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5XgZGFTsNU I accept contributions, barter, trade and places to stay or tent along the way... my work now calls me to complete Delaware River, Susquehanna River, Tennessee River and on to its' confluence with Ohio and Mississippi Rivers and on... it could also be that I travel to other lands to work along the rivers where my intentions of Love, Peace and Cocreativity are messages for the Earth and the Sky to see... come along with me with this journey!... I also encourage others to set marks with charcoal (cleansing elemental) or other natural markings to honor life...

Thanks for your interest and support...
