Also on view in the gallery will be palm trees made of rattan, along with new acrylic on canvas paintings of his signature trees. The rattan is woven around a metal armature and the trees are meticulously crafted; leaves and stems have been carefully painted with acrylic paint and even include naturally occurring flaws in their pigmentation. From a distance, they look like their living counterparts, and their almost perfect mimesis offers a poignant counterpoint to the marble re-creations, which flaunt the notion of the handcrafted marble sculptures.
