Composed from the printings of five photo negatives, this work considers our human interdependence with trees. Through layered and collaged images, I explore the complexity of how our life and breath depends on them. One negative is for a woman’s legs, another for her baby, two negatives for oak tree blossoms, and one negative for a woman’s hand. I painted the oak blossoms with green and red Kremer pearlescent watercolor.
Chimera or Breath: Is her hand grazing her belly or the green spring Oak leaves?
Her baby already emerged.
Her legs sprout Oak blossoms.
Red is our blood pulsing with oxygen.
An interchange, a melding, a melody.
