EXHIBITION ON VIEW:  APR 17 - MAY 20, 2020

RECEPTION: MAY 9 6 - 8 PM

Artist bio:

David Winward (Salt Lake City, Born 1978) 

Winward typically works in crochet, collage, and conceptual art. With “One Tree,” Winward presents all the leaves of a single tree as a factual reality. The everyday experience of seeing a tree is portrayed not as an image of a tree but as the individual parts of a tree. Turning the expression “Can’t see the forest for the trees” into “Can’t see the tree for the leaves.”  The extravagance of a tree is on full display. Over the course of seven months from May 2017 to December 2017, Winward scanned the leaves of a small poplar tree near his office.  The result was 11,396 leaves. To understand how many leaves this is, imagine posting a single leaf each day on instagram.  It would take you just over 31 years to post all of them.
