Ode To A Cottonwood draws inspiration from the cottonwood trees growing on the banks of the St. Joseph River. They can be easily identified in a grove of trees by their deeply fissured bark and the way their leaves uniquely shimmer in the wind. This piece evokes an impressive presence, emphasizing Nature’s grandeur. In contrast, the industrial materials bound tightly together reflect the rapidity of mass-production and overconsumption of natural resources—humans’ tight grasp on a wild force.
