"PRAYER TREES" - 60" X 20" - Found metals, gold leaf, oil on wood by Diana Woods. I can't read the words of the prayers which I quite like in a way, as it means that I can imagine them to be whatever I want them to be. I find this to be a very successful merging of narrative and beautiful imagery.
Leslie Richmond "Lesley photographs trees, focusing on the intricacy of their branching structures and then prints these images on cloth, using a medium that creates a dimensional surface. She then eliminates selected background areas, leaving the structural images of trees as the dominant feature. The images are then painted with metal patinas and pigments."
