Gateway is a mobile forest I created by collecting natural materials found underfoot on a hike. After casting them in charcoal and glass I composed this gestural drawing, imagining the bark as strokes from a large brush, branches as charcoal lines and woven wool as filtered light. This piece is constructed on a transparent wire mesh, increasing its reliance on its surroundings to alter the imagery it contains.
