Here you’ll find select creations that are part of the “Live Forest Art” development process.
Geborgenheit or “GeBorgy”
Below are the prototype pieces I built when first developing what has evolved into “Live Forest Art” and the subsequent workshops. These pieces are all over three years old now and should remain as they are for some time yet.
They are quite fragile, so special delivery and setup is available.
Inspired by the Guelph Off-Road Bicycle Association trail system, this is one of the original pieces and the first to combine rocks together to form the base. The treeling is formed from several pieces and fitted with hand-painted foliage. It’s about 16″ tall x 16″ wide x 9″ deep.
Inspired by the autumn through winter colour tones at Starkey Hill, this piece sets a mood of rest after the harvest. This base is actually a couple of fieldstones found late in the year. The treeling is decorated with winter oak leaves. This is an all-natural sculpture that has not been coloured. It features an optional stand. It’s about 16″ tall x 19″ wide x 12″ deep. The stand adds about 4″ and could be modified for wall mounting.
A wilted sapling, a weathered snag, and a watchful cairn. To me this composition portrays a sense of imminent mortality. It’s about 10″ tall x 6″ wide x 6″ deep.
I remember being out on a hike with a friend and suddenly stopping. Something had caught my attention and I turned around, step back, and pulled this out from under the leaves and debris on the forest floor. Still don’t know how I could have seen/sensed it.
A colleague gave me a piece of “scrap” poly, which turned out to be perfect for the base. All the bits came together into a very unique form. It’s shown with the original painted foliage and moss. It features an amazing dried mushroom. It’s about 28″ tall x 28″ wide x 16″ deep. Could be wall mounted by changing the base/stand.
