arose from the remnants of a birch tree that was an integral
part of my environment for over 30 years. Because of disease,
the birch tree had to be chopped down and in the resulting
dead twigs, branches and logs, a narrative unfolded regenerating
the life force of the tree. Marks generated by discarded
and degenerated parts of a birch tree are used to create
the essence and spirit of the tree itself.
