This series was started in the Fall of 2019. The branches are trimmings from a winter-killed holly bush and cuttings from two apple trees by my terrace. The series will continue slowly as I collect new branches.
They carry on from earlier installation pieces done in my studio in 2018.
My intention is to highlight the arresting beauty of the natural forms in a new context. Wrapping the branches with faux leather cord is a means to relate the branches explicitly with my drawn lines.
