Stump Stool, Wet felted bark textures.
In my life written words have mostly been on paper; hand printed, cursive, typed, scrawled, computer generated. Trees are a precursor to paper and help give life to written words. I am inspired by the textures of cut logs, their contrast, their growth rings a record of a life lived, a type of tree words. What if a tree could speak our words? I am also appalled by the clear cutting of trees, the destruction of a living micro-climate and ecosystem. I hope to provoke thoughts about how we currently live on the earth in a selfish and egocentric way; valuing ourselves over all nature. Maybe you are inspired to contemplate how to live more lightly, carefully and in harmony on our one home.
