Gravity-Defying Stone Balancing Art By Michael Grab
Canada-born and Colorado-based artist and photographer Michael Grab is a master of stone balancing. Perhaps magician’s a better word for it, actually, as it’s difficult to comprehend how he could have created his graceful works of balance art.
Fortunately, Grab’s videos shows the artist engage in the meditative process behind these works of art, which require enormous amounts of patience and care.
“Over the past few years of practicing rock balance, simple curiosity has evolved into therapeutic ritual, ultimately nurturing meditative presence, mental well-being, and artistry of design,” writes Grab on his artist statement. “Alongside the art, setting rocks into balance has also become a way of showing appreciation, offering thanksgiving, and inducing meditation.”
