The Lamentations series originates from my deep fondness for nature. Walks in the northern deciduous and evergreen forests, are my most recent observation grounds where one encounters naturally fallen and broken trees and man-trimmed trees. The clean-cut of a saw on a coniferous limb, makes it bleed with sap. I intuitively associated the drops of sap with my own tears about the increased and uncontrolled world deforestation. 

Associating the christian canonical gospels related through medieval and renaissance European imagery, I create crying tree limbs to solicit compassion and consideration for nature.
