Blue Forest is a perfectly straight stand of trees one might see touring Provence or Tuscany. The trees – made of lavender stalks with additional dried leaves — are mounted in a roadside wall structure made of gnarled weathered branch fragments and thistle plant leaves. The botanical elements are secured with wood glue and pearlized paint pigments, and gold leaf is applied for embellishment. The composition is glazed with clear lacquer for preservation and enhancement.
