the dreaming tree – resurfacing 9 years later…
it was not until i was half way through this drawing of a misfit willow sculpture created through these pores in some sort of vine i found in the forest when i realized that it is almost precisely the same image and process from 9 years before.
i was trying to articulate dreams on paper in my last year of art school in scotland, and had this dream of a tree form, with these progressive contractions which projected out from the central wood sculpture. i built and documented this form in 2005, without really getting closer to understanding the object or dream, but enjoying the inquiry all the same.
