Each morning as I have breakfast, I see the trees in my neighbor's yard. I like the tall tallow and slender crepe myrtles best in winter when they form interesting patterns and contrasts against a cool sky. Rather than working w. the many meshed branching areas, I used rice paper that creased and moved as it was adhered to the background BFK, to mimic the various patterns.
This piece too has a rice paper skin, but over many small industrial parts. As
I worked on the above piece I was examining my thought processes, and felt that
like the tree branches, they sprouted in many directions, some overlaying others that
then faded. This work is one in which I mapped that experience.
