What a Tree-t!

July 16, 2017

PAM-TreeHere is another exceptional work of art that I discovered last month while at the Phoenix Art Museum.  This sculpture, by Rebecca Campbell, is entitled “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?” and “is composed of a tree wrapped in black velvet, standing in a base of salt and with tiny, windex-filled glass birds sitting on its branches” (from the media release).  Campbell explained that her inspiration for the sculpture came from seeing a group of burned trees against a stark snowy background.

Here’s a link to an interview with the artist.
