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.

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 us.
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.
Submission deadline: August 30, 2017
