Image Statement: What would it mean to bring the forest into the studio and gallery? A literal re-framing of nature, or a recontextualization into man-made vessels. Think terrariums. Think museum specimens. One in a series of forest artworks housed in antique boxes, canning jars, bell jars, old books, and antique frames.
