Piece description from the artist

Alive is a tree made from sculpted paper and string. the sculpted media are built up over a detailed acrylic painting. Line shapes, colors and forms in the painting echo the shapes created by paper and string and vice versa. This echoing creates a seamless integration between the sculpted subject and painted background. String and paper are ideal materials for mixed media inventions in the style of Van Gogh and other post Impressionist painters. The curves, contrasts and planes of these media capture essential qualities of the Old Masters brushwork, and embody them in three dimensions.
