Artist Statement: My
training was in writing, specifically poetry, but I have also painted
for as long as I’ve been writing. I think of my painting in similar
terms as my writing. A series of paintings is like a novel, where each
painting is a chapter that can stand on its own but is integral to an
overarching story. Then there are paintings or prints that tell a
complete story on their own and there are some that are just fragments
of a story. Those I like to think of as poems. The Underground Gallery

ARBOREAL An Exhibit of Artwork About Trees
If there is any natural
form beyond the ocean that is more symbolic of nature as the origin of
humanity, it is trees. Both are powerful beyond our reckoning in their
own ways, and each provides an unappreciated resource, assumed, until
most recently, to be infinite. Trees are the lungs of the Earth, and
thereby an extension of the lungs of any breathing creature, including
How do artists interpret
the role or form of the tree? What meaning is derived from a creative
response to this force of nature? How are the fates of trees, forests,
and mankind intertwined, and how is this expressed through art? How do
tree-based materials, and therefore trees themselves, influence the
artwork that they are used to make?
Manifest invites artists
working in any media to share works that either directly or indirectly
address the topic of trees or related aspects. The theme is open
to wide interpretation, and works may explore various avenues of
thought around the tree, its dependents, or its wood.
