The Element of Wood: Pine Beetle Rounds & Herb Prints

The force that through the green fuse drives the flower.
- Poet Dylan Thomas

Solo Exhibit, 2015
Community Creative Center, Fort Collins, CO
This show focused on two bodies of work: prints made from herbs used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and mixed media pieces done on wood rounds harvested from the Rawah Forest of Northern Colorado.

The herbal prints and the wood rounds share the element of wood - one of the five elements of TCM: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. Thus, the show became about the wood element and its characteristics of germination, extension, softness, harmony, flexibility, etc.
