Trees… Art Project


This project stems from a vision I had as a 14 year old, looking at a dozen trees, in planters, at a open air shopping mall. The trees were almost identical, perhaps twenty feet apart, and lit by the malls closed shops and perhaps a few spotlights. What I saw at that time was a half dozen giants that had fallen to earth, going head first into the ground, buried up to the waist. Because the tress had all forked at the same height it appeared that the legs extended to the sky disappearing into the leaves and dark night.
In trying to explain this, I found that most people needed an illustration, so 50 years later I tried to help by putting pants on selected trees. The following images document that experience.
