This event has ended.

Tabla Rasa Gallery presents a diverse collection of artwork inspired by trees.

Anders Knutsson, Co-curator and exhibiting artist comments, “Trees are of exceptional interest to many people and of enormous consequence to all living things. Trees have figured in every known religion and belief system on earth: The Tree of Life, of Knowledge – from Yggdrasil in the North, to the Bodh Tree in the East, to more or less “primitive” spirit trees, even to the battle cries of the Environmentalists.

“There is something magical about a tree and especially, a big tree. A tree of great size conveys strength, stability by its massive trunk, a sense of awe in its towering height, and lightness and flexibility in the branches that reach up to the light.

“All trees serve us in an endless number of ways, some modest – a bit of shade on a summer day or shelter from a shower, many practical, as providers of lumber, fruits and nuts, humble firewood and high tech medicines. Trees give us oxygen to breathe, help balance weather, and stabilize the soil. Few are the birds, animals, worms, bugs, all the way down the life chain to fungus and microbes, who would not sing praise to our trees, if they could – and some actually do!

“In the INTIMATE FOREST exhibition we present some samples of 14 contemporary artists’ vision and approach to this timeless subject, whose scope and spirit are limitless!”
