RED ROCK, BLACK SUN was originally created as a unique book-and- wooden-sculpture hybrid conceived and produced by artist and author Will Cloughley in collaboration with sculptor David Dion. When these two friends met they realized they shared a lifelong fascination with the mysterious red rock canyon lands of the American Southwest which had inspired them to artistic expression in very different mediums.

David's sculpture captures the sensuous feminine curves of water-carved rock and abstracts them into the essence of the canyon caught in wood. The outward form of the sculpture also is meant to suggest a mastaba, a form of ancient Egyptian tomb which preceded the pyramids. Its scale might also suggest a container for a holy relic. The sculpture opens to reveal the book nested into a receptacle in the base. But the real container of the mysteries for both of these artists are the canyon lands themselves with their book-like layers of fossil records.

The book block of reduced and re-worked drawings with text on heavy, acid-free art paper were prepared by Will Cloughley and bound into a wooden book cover to match the sculpture by veteran book craftsman, Howard Munson.

Artist Curtis Schreier contributed design ideas for the sculpture and performed elegant work with the router to carve the book receptacle and the hinges.

The book -- now available as a digitally printed edition -- is a philosophical walkabout through a sacred landscape captured in 30 plates of stylized, mixed-media color drawings of the geologic wonders of the desert in which Will's doppelganger appears as silhouette man who makes contact with the spirits of the canyon and confronts the possibility of a paradigm shift in consciousness.
