All Tied Up Series, 2019-20

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.

Branches, White on Black, 2018

These drawings, as well as the Black and White Branches, were done in response to the photographs from and the experience of my walks on trails and in the woods. My desire deviated from copying the photos. Rather I expressed the internal conversation I was having with nature. The drawings demonstrate the design that is inherent in the abstract formations of lines I usually make, many of which are shown on this website.
