This is the only teaser I’ll be posting of the finished “Tree Rings- One Year After Cutting”. The above work has been waxed and then lighted from behind. It’s next step will involve framing and back-lighting. Overall, I’m pretty happy with how this has turned out. There are a few glitchy things that I’m not certain I’ll be able to fix to my liking. Let’s just say “tension wrinkles happen”. I now have a better idea of how to avoid them (hopefully) with the next cutting project. The final reveal will occur once the piece is framed and complete. That might happen in a couple of weeks so don’t be holding your breath! Framing is my least favorite thing to do since it makes me step outside my comfort zone.
This one of several pieces I’ll enter into a jury selection for a specific show titled Rot: The afterlife of trees at The Arts Center of Corvallis Oregon.
