The Imposition

The Imposition
Oak, resin, pigment, washers, dental floss, antique keys, zip-ties and wire.
8' x 4'

The Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek was given a diseased, 300 year old oak tree. The fallen tree was cut into pieces and given to artists who transformed the wood into sculpture for the
"Big Tree Project"."The Imposition" was included in the show. Working with wood was a departure for me, usually the materials I work with are soft and flexible but by drilling holes and threading them with zip-ties, I gave a nod to my fascination with sewing.
