Growth Spurts, Knobs, and Knuckles: An Environment of Trees by Lizi Brown
Summer 2021 - Fall 2021
Watching, listening, and appreciating the woods, Lizi Brown brings us an environment of trunk gestures, affected by the events and seasons that have a lasting influence on a tree’s aspect and structure. Her concern for the trees, their lives caught in climate shifts, is recorded with fluidity and simple rendering. Soaring images, executed in ink and paint on panels of paper, create patterns in light and dark intertwined with elemental observation. Brown shows the sweeps of growth as well as the knobs and knuckles of their lives!
