Rock, with a mixture of humor and seriousness, irony and reverence, monumentality and subtle sensitivity, mostly creates variations on natural objects. In addition to sensitive communication with nature, his works also reflect other areas of human life, such as the creation and processing of synthetic materials. Also with a certain degree of ironic insight, he sensitively picks up the light, color, shape and material qualities of found things and their unexpected combinations.
