Piece description from the artist

The brownstones in my neighborhood are beautiful. I'm fascinated by the interactions between the street trees and the buildings themselves. The trees dapple the light while the architecture structures it.

7000 Oaks is one my favorite pieces by Joseph Beuys, and I feel like the relationship between street trees and the brownstones they stand in front of echoes some of the aspects of that work. The trees grow, as they do, and mark the passage of time for those that dwell within and maintain the houses. The trees are clocks and records for those that live near them.

I frequently walk these blocks with the 311 app on my phone. I look for empty spaces in the sidewalks where I can click through to request a new street tree.

When we choose to live with trees, they can become the platform for intergenerational dialogue. I paint them as a way to think through these magnificent organisms and our relationship to them.
