Kaethe Kauffman meditates on the unseen systems of forest growth as well as on memories of the calm, steady presence of individual trees throughout her life. Her most recent series of prints on paper and silk not only explore the individuality and spirit of trees combined with the physical movement of walking through nature but then captures this sensation with the meditative movements of drawing. These artworks, in turn, are transformed into prints on silk banners and on paper mounted onto wood panels. The lightweight fabric installations act as thin veils of consciousness. The installation of 20 prints mounted onto woodblocks re-combine into a larger mural until the image of individual trees is subsumed into a collective vision.
