Alan Sonfist, Myself Becoming One with the Tree, 1969/2022, Photograph, 4 x 17

The exhibition Becoming Trees brings together the work of fifteen artists whose depiction of trees evinces a variety of approaches to empathy for the subject. The body of the tree and the human body are compared and conflated. The threshold between what is human and what is nature is critiqued, massaged, and permeated; poked at with fingers and with branches; hugged and held at arm’s length.
