Summit – Kris Martin

“The top is nice when you haven’t reached it, but once you get [there], the potential is gone. Dreams are what keep people going.” Kris Martin

These eight rocks on display in the Saatchi Gallery quietly speak of man conquering nature and of death eventually conquering all. At first glance I missed the tiny paper crosses attached to the top of each rock and I guess many people will have left the room without noticing the depth of this work.
