Sanctus of this oak tree, curvature of circumstances that nature places upon mother tree define the gift of herself from which tools are made. Naturally, tools then made carry the personality of that mothers nature as their particular use couples in the foundation of shapes with delightful variety. Each tobacco stick, even within its kinship, presents a unique, personal, shape and texture. Then, when seen as a group, we see the song of a population of individuals. Humans, singing their song of culture, create objects with their sublime “Homage to Wood.”
The Planet. Ukraine. All Countries. Covid and beyond. Unsafe streets schools, churches, all of America's random, out of Control, unmanageable gun violence.
Political, governmental malfeasance. Even heroic first responders often find America’s streets unfriendly. Shame on humanity for often embracing evil in the interest of the Almighty Profit.
Thank you to all who try so hard to bring help that is often, desperately needed. Thank you to artists who give lives to beauty of song, image and rejoicing in our hearts. The “Big Dress” sculpture in which the set was built is by artist Leslie Fry.
