Duality in Art and Life : city vs forest


I love the city.
I love the architecture.
 Its just BIG functional art.
 When I catch the bus to work, I travel past all the city's eclectic mix of structures...


I love maps.
I love their aesthetic quality. 
They remind me that we are like little ants going down many different pathways.


I love the forest.
I love the multitudes of trees, with branches that overlap and intertwine...


and roots that become part of the earth.


I love to be.
I love to be in these places,
 that are so different, and yet so connected.



So I've been working on a diptych of dichotomy.
 The dual of people vs planet.
What are side are we barracking for I wonder?

The forest or...
the city.




It is International Year of the Forest - lets take care of them
.... invest in them and we invest in us!

  3. Thanks for stopping by Just Drink a Coke. I am actually thinking about framing them. I just have to wait until I can find 26 cheap frames...ahhhh! I'm thinking Dollar Store and spraying them black. What do you think, you're the artist? BTW, your art is very cool. I recently framed a piece my boys did. You'll have to check it out. Are they budding artists? Seriously, you're my go-to artist from now on ;-)

    Thanks,
