With Daily Geology, John Peña offers small pencil drawings—full of family dynamics, random encounters, personal hungers and longings—to gradually tell the big story of a life. Aiming to dramatize links between humans and nature, he invokes geology to define his life as a slow accretion of experience. 

Artist Statement: Through my artwork, I am trying to communicate with nature and in many ways, emulate it as well. By engaging with the natural world in such a way, I hope to create poetic and magical moments that reveal the subtle relationships between humans and nature. So I write letters to the ocean and race with clouds in an effort to tease out and capture elusive moments that arise from everyday encounters. The products of these experiments are often absurd, humorous and subtle gestures that move between public and private spaces and exist in both monumental and intimate scales.
