Artist Statement

This is more about a place than a tree. I am after a sense of the momentous and sacred: what I can experience in the present that gives a tiny glimpse of insight to both past and future. I seek a place where time is tangible and puts me in my place as a human in a much larger narrative. We eventually became part of the earth’s narrative, and I get the feeling we used to understand more thoroughly our role by being better listeners and proceeding with humility, with less aggressive need for short-term control, and I like to be reminded of this.
