    Nature can not be made by human hands... or can it?


    The series called "Pine" is a followup on the "Bark" series where I research the transformation of nature when it is remade by human hands. Perception, skill and the use of material, re shaped the object to a piece that represents the natural form.


    In this series I took it one step further. I approached the tree as a living organism in which many process take place. By drawing a tree with this in mind, the tree started to reform. After I used this drawing as a blueprint for two new sculptures, all that remains from the tree is a distorted reflection where a human functioned as mirror.
