Third Variation, Regrowth, 2017

wood, steel

84 in. x 40 in. 

Everything's exists through stages. The passing of time is presented through our ability to see the stages and eras that all things go through. This sculpture presents a new variation of a decayed palm tree. It exists as its third variation from being planted/growing to decay/deconstruction and my own reconstruction/regrowth of the individuals segments of trunk. 

The growing seedlings allow for a process of reincarnation/reestablishment.
