I have always been fascinated by symbols incorporated in American 
Indian jewelry and painted on rocks.  The jewelry glyphs and petroglyphs 
are an example of pure abstraction.  The essential marks expressing 
humans, animals and plants are sophisticated and unencumbered by 
self-consciousness.  These paintings are a tribute to man's natural urge 
to decorate and embellish.                                       Ginny Tompkins
