Stump Cozy by Shanon Schollian
Ok it is a bit of a tired cliche; but there is a lot of tree art in the
Pacific Northwest. Then again, why not when half of Brooklyn is faux forest happy.
It's a tad ridiculous but there is something about not having the thing in a gallery
that works wonders. Shanon Schollian's Stump
project took place way back in 2002 and now the stumpmeister general
himself, Michael Brophy, currently
has a show at the Hallie Ford Museum
. Malia Jensen also did some shirts for
trees a while back too. Ok, lets just say the Lorax is a very influential character around here.
Portland Art Museum even has a serine but menacing Ernst Ludwig Kirchner depicting
some Douglas Fir trees which I dearly love, but we have to wait until October
to see it again due to construction.
