Entry Title: "Transplanting Reality; Transcending Nature"
Category: Professional, Fine Art
This is a continuation and transfiguring of my Transplanting
Profile Link: Profile link
Reality; Transforming Nature series.
Forests and trees have played a prominent role in many
folktales and legends and have been given deep and sacred
meanings. They are seen as powerful symbols of growth, decay
and resurrection. I am responding by striving to make visual the
ephemeral nature of sacred, spiritual realms.
In this series, I am transplanting replica trees into the natural
world then creating ethereal forms that blend with and supplant
the natural environment. One is artificial, the other a spirit form;
both represent the transcendence of nature.
