Recasting Nature

2000, Boston Sculptors at Chapel Gallery,
West Newton, MA

This installation, made of natural materials and translucent resin, explores relationships between nature and architecture. Some of the sculptures suggest thickets, tangles or tree trunks. Others are architectural forms such as a corridor of icicle-like rose stems or a wall of resin "bricks", smooth on one side with ragged layers of exposed leaves on the other side.

At first, they look like ordinary ropes, rising out of a pile on the floor like snakes charmed out of a basket. Turns out, though, that the "rope" is made of acorn caps, thousands of them fastidiously strung on monofilament. -- Boston Globe    READ REVIEWS
