An Exploration of Wood Textures
There’s something about seeing the textures in the base of tree trunks that’s inspiring. Pondering the lives of beings that are hundreds of years old whether they are growing, fallen, or washed ashore screams the adage ‘The stories they could tell…’. It’s mesmerizing and humbling to see the very bottom of a tree, where the roots and trunk come together, forming the foundation and strength needed to support the life above. Realizing how much pressure and energy it takes to cause the wood to grow this way makes me think of my own struggles and experiences and how they help me grow, enabling me to stand up tall.
This is an ongoing exploration and will be updated as I discover new patterns, textures, and stories that I find compelling.
