Sandstone by Sabine Leclercq Haanes

When you look at sand, you realize that it is never one unique color. Sand is a conglomeration of all kinds of minerals and particles. It is loose, granular and can appear as pale yellow, light brown, cream, buff, ecru, fawn or even khaki. And sandstone, or chalk, is a sedimentary rock made up of sand. In this work, I tried to connect loose sand and solid sandstone. Sandstone is composed of sand-sized mineral or rock fragments, or in other words sand cemented. I aimed to capture that incredible mix of tints and casts that you can see when you stare at sand long enough.
