There will be no trees falling in the forest ...and everyone will hear the sound.
In her exhibit roots, multimedia artist A.Kimberlin Blackburn employs symbolic and conventional usage of roots and trees.
With a tender eye on nature, these works touch on the historical references and ethereal, contemplative serenity she uncovered in her daily life. Blackburn flawlessly yet imperfectly transforms raw and vintage materials found in her home and on the farm into a varied-scale forest of trees. From discarded rusty hardware and tree stumps, to white painted lace and her signature beadwork – understated but still evident -- materials alone create a wide spectrum of meaning, allowing ample opportunity for interpretation.
