Leaf Dreams

1997, Boston Sculptors at Chapel Gallery,
West Newton, MA

Inspired by the falling leaves of the cucumber tree, this indoor environment contrasts with the skeletal tree outside, which viewers walk past as they enter the exhibit. Using leaves that were dried and dipped in beeswax, the sculpture captures a transitory phenomenon and re-forms it in a playful way. It is a meditation on the beauty of nature amidst a process of loss, death and decay.

Beth Galston's work has always possessed a romantic quality--accessible, even sensual, yet paradoxically structured and coolly intellectual. -- Boston Globe    READ REVIEWS
