I am ready to think of creating Elation. Wood. But...what kind? An architect? The space? It is exciting and this summer I want to start!
I will try to make some strides in researching and making contacts to start the process. I am ready. I must make a blueprint of the structure and work with an architect, I believe.
So...this is my time to investigate wood... I love the smell, feel and touch of wood. I love trees.
I am now in the exploration and research stage of wood.
The surrealists, women especially I think, used trees to show the human form. I have seen some of these works of art and I relate to seeing the branches as limbs. I often see them as striking dancer-like poses.
I want to only use trees that must be cut down or already are felled. The artist I mentioned in an earlier post, Robert Ressler uses trees sent to him that are necessary to cut down due to disease or other circumstances. This is an important point in the use of a natural source of oxygen and beauty that I do not wish to abuse in the making of my piece.
