This open book, part of my Detritus series, was originally photographed in a snowy aspen grove in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. The scorched markings echo the worm larvae carvings on the inner bark and cores of aspens. This image comes from an installation at the Long Beach Museum of Art, Long Beach, California in 2009. Currently this book sculpture is back in Southern California at Arena 1 Gallery in Santa Monica. I am one of 16 artists exhibiting in the show "Signs of the Forest", curated by Jean Clad. The exhibit runs from July 17 to August 21.
