I’m very excited to announce the latest exhibit Branching Out: Trees As Art in the Art & Nature Center at the Peabody Essex Museum is exhibiting a photograph of Birch Bark Series (Water Play III) an environmental installation from my residency in the White Mountain National Forest! This piece is from a series I created with found birch bark and the photograph is of the circular portals strung together playing in the water before they were hung as a meditative contemplation, from a fallen branch over the Wild River. Please refer to my posts I wrote during my residency to learn more about this process.
Artists in the exhibit use trees as a means to making art such as sculptures, photographs and even music. I highly recommend listening to Bartholomaus Traubeck who plays cross sections of trees like records resulting in eerily melodic unstructured instrumentals. Below is a photo of sound artist Diego Stocco recording a bonsai! The exhibit runs until Sept. 2015, so you have no excuse but to get there!!
