I came late to this universal understanding several years ago: that trees and water hold powerful and magical energy. Since then, this has been undeniable and impossible for me to ignore.
Considering myself in terms of the outdoors was a shift that has remained been both exciting and frightening.
Like the Dead Tree Graveyard drawings before them, these three oversized Fern Forest drawings also recount a resonant place. In this case though, it is a most-loved place in which I visit and re-visit whenever I can. I have intended them to portray auras of enchantment and solitude; the real and imagined physical conditions of forests and groves of trees; and atmospheres that may be electrifying or peaceful. They are not intended to be static, but rather changing moments in real time.
