Time leaves its mark on everything, creating proud battle scars rich in visual and sensory stimulation. When we see the wondrous watercolour mottling of rusted metal, and the eroded indentations on stone, we recall the touch of cool metal on skin, and the sandpaper-like tactility of rough stone.
Like fine wine, the patina that develops on the surface of some metals comes only with the march of time. No painter could do a better job than nature.
