Tangled Forest, playfully depicts a haunting forest, while in actuality it is a hand-altered photograph of winter Hydrangea skeleton flower behind a frost-encrusted window. The photo’s apparent silhouettes of trees mimic the forms and designs found in the flowers themselves, and indeed in its microscopic cellular make-up. This depiction of winter recalls the obdurate memory of summer.
The materiality of this Encaustic photograph underlines a further connection: between the images of trees and the natural tree resin in encaustic medium.
