"CONVERSATIONS IN THE WOODS"   is a playful expression of joy, aliveness and relationship.  This installation piece is one of a series that incorporate elements of its setting into the work.  The trees and the space of the woods become part of the characters;  the branches become the hair and the mind;  the birds and the animals playing in the branches are among the events of the mind.  While the conversation is without words, there is a dialog across the path and space which engages one tree-person with another and with all of life around it.  The piece can be considered to symbolize our interconnectedness with all of nature and the universe.

"Conversations in the Woods"  8' high, painted wood sculpture is shown here at the Chesterwood Museum outdoor show: Contemporary Sculpture at Chesterwood 1994, Stockbridge, Massachusetts from June 26 through October 9, 1994.   

After the exhibition at Chesterwood, the piece was purchased and relocated to a private property in Lenox, MA.  The attachments for much larger trees were redesigned to permit the trees to grow without breaking the sculpture.  It was renamed "Conversations in a Space Between Two Tall Trees and a House"
