These photographs isolate the object – caught in the stare of the flash, they stand plainly in sight, solid and naked.
These objects are trees, standing in the forest, or alone.
These trees are pines, they are weed nuggets, they are garbage cans and cemented stumps, they are wallpaper and plastic, they are existential objects.
We present them together, a silent poem, an implied joke.
We celebrate their beauty.
We throw them a party.
2 performances, 2 bands, 2 DJs, you and me and everyone we know, and lots of trees. LOTS of trees.
Exhibition on display March 17 through April 3
