Leaves, acorns, branches, logs, and seed pods are preserved by making castings of their shapes or embedding them in resin, like insects in amber. Extracted from the natural cycles of growth and decay, the objects beome frozen moments in time, leading the viewer to meditations on transience and permanence.

Beth Galston has exhibited vast collections of leaves, acorns and dried pods in elegant, and dramatically obsessive installations containing hundreds if not thousands of these forms dried and stacked in rows, circles and loose piles. -- artsMEDIA    READ REVIEWS
