Study of found object interpreted as MAN WALKING. This is a 7ft dried tree branch with humanoid features. The head of the figure is a natural piece of split wood, yet I carved the nose with a saw. Marsh reed leaves have been stapled upon the head and around the neck.
the intent was to create an outdoor installation using natural occurring objects in nature.
Materials used: 1 row of staples and 2 wood screws

Discovering Mother Earth
Forgotten On The Forest Floor
The Dreamer of Trees
The below 3 photo documents are capturing a sculpture using found objects to portray motherhood. It became very apparent during the hunting and gathering of the materials that the art making became inner tribal. Not till I had erected it in the forest, did it occur to me that this is my inner inherent tribal coming forth in the rhythm of making art.
The figure is all composed of natural pieces of wood and a broken angel and a few wood screws.
When viewing the metaphor for baby, it has no head...symbolizing that the baby has germinated inside the womans womb...yet the baby has not been named yet....thus no head, no identity....once mother and father comune on the realization of each created a baby.....then the parents dream together; the identity of the baby......and its born with a face.
The construction is 8ft high and is only 4 piecses of naturally formed wood.
