1 meter diameter
Carved dead pine tree, acrylic paint

The work is a site-specific sculpture consisting of a dead pine tree I carved on for a week. I look at it as a portrait of the old tree. An intuitive processing of the body it has left to life in the forest. And an attempt to express the experience I have of the tree while I have been working on it.
