Most of my trees have elaborate, sprawling branches, but a solid, sturdy trunk can be equally striking. Despite a difficult environment, these two trees flourished, growing resilient and majestic until they tower over everything on the prairie.
Artist Statement for Laura Thomas’ solo exhibition - A Poem as Lovely
"A Poem as Lovely," in an allusion to the Joyce Kilmer poem, "Trees."
Trees are part of every human experience. Even in tech-heavy modern life, they persist along city sidewalks, in our furniture and buildings, and in art. Like us, they grow, blossom, and die, and like us, each one has a unique geometry. This collection emphasizes the essential, human-like nature of trees by making ‘portraits’ of their various shapes, personalities, and moods.
