Scattered Trees is an exhibition of work from a series titled “THAW”, which is meant to capture the landscape between winter and spring. The series is a study on color and movement while exploring the theme of memory through symbolism or association to a specific object, in this case the tree log.
The title of the exhibition refers to a fading memory where fleeting images and thoughts cross and become scrambled or “scattered”. Similarly to data on a computer memories float in an endless plethora of information that often gets lost. The repetition of the tree log is meant to trigger your own memories or experiences that are either directly or indirectly associated to it’s shape.
