The wood-art installation “what lies beneath” has completed its run at the Cornell Botanic Gardens @ Cornell University. After 6 months of an amazingly wonderful opportunity to meet so many people who appreciated my art, I have to say I feel a distinct sadness and happiness at the very same time. Most of the art exhibited was crafted primarily from wood obtained from the Botanic Gardens Collections and from the Finger Lakes Region of Central New York. However, it is still a great honor to be able to utilize wood that has been pruned or from trees that have been removed due to storm damage or decay. A perfect symbiotic relationship that allows me to reuse wood that would normally be chipped up into mulch.
I still receive email from people who saw my work and are looking for more. You can email at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are looking for something special.
It is all about discovering the mysteries of “what lies beneath” the surface of not just a tree or a piece of wood, but to show the beauty and uniqueness in each piece, and to serve as a reminder of the importance of seeking depth in all that surrounds us in order to better understand our natural world, ourselves and others.
As with all of my art, a percentage of the sales will be donated back to the Gardens and other local non-profits.
I create. You buy. We donate.
