GeoRarities are artist brothers Stuart Goller and Michael Goller. The two work primarily in stone sculpture and painting. Recently they are also creating videos for use on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok. When creating stone sculptures, they select the boulders or rough material, imagine what each piece looks like inside and out, and use the direct method of stone carving where a fully dimensional form or figure is created for the first time in the stone itself, as the artist removes material, sketches on the block of stone, and develops the work along the way. Mother Nature informs us with each rough stone’s natural color, texture, shape, weight and imperfections playing a part in the final dimensional form or figure.
We sometimes incorporate natural items with man-made and found items to create provocative combinations that challenge the gap between “natural” and “man-made”.
We sculpt and create work using a number of natural materials including: very rare Siberian Russian jade, Wyoming jade, Mexican chrysocolla with veins of the mineral turquoise, Arizona rainbow petrified wood, Arizona chromium green petrified wood, jasper, turquoise nuggets, and rainbow calcite. We prefer rare materials that display colors, textures, translucence, veining and imperfections not normally seen in stones selected for modern stone sculptures.
Our work is suitable for interiors as displayable works, or outside as part of landscape architectural design. We also create large, monumental sculptures.
As artists we are inspired by the work of Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Robert Rauschenberg and Jim Dine as well as the unknown ancient carvers and sculptors of jade.
We also create multimedia, paintings, drawings software generated generative art and NFTs (non-fungible token) art.
