Part of the Witnessing Waves series, this pair of trees are wrapped up in each other, oblivious to the sunset, Minnehaha Falls, and beauty surrounding them.
The Mississippi River Gorge and her wealth of heritage trees has always intrigued, inspired, and comforted me. This series pays respect to these gentle witnesses of migration and settlement along our mighty river, these magnificent, steadfast trees. The trees acknowledge the contribution of all of our respective backgrounds and ancestries. Our families have all traveled to this place, the Twin Cities. It is our collective heritage that makes our community a culturally rich and diverse place to call home. The trees welcome all, without discrimination. It is my hope that we all become like the trees. The series, Witnessing Waves, is currently 26 paintings deep, with fresh ideas arriving continuously.
The series is imbued with symbolism. DNA strands weave along the river banks and through the roots and ground, reminding us of our connections with all, whether it is nature or each other. The individual squares, thousands of squares, are our opportunities. We can choose to interact, or choose to ignore, there are a myriad of options to explore.
Showcased on the award winning MN Originals, this series is continues to grow!
