Freyja Bardell, Kristin Jones, Jill Lear, Chris Manfield
For our February Tree Talk, four ecoartspace artists present their diverse ideas and artworks about trees and forests. Freyja Bardell will discuss three projects that focus on trees, forging connections to a specific tree or forest through themes of loss, life cycle, spirituality and survival. Kristin Jones will share her working process on her ongoing work BEHOLD, a cross-disciplinary project aimed at celebrating iconic urban trees by merging science, art, environmentalism and technology. Jill Lear will discuss the premise for her current body of work, Urban Sprawl: Trees in Cities, followed by a tour of her favorite trees with photos, artwork and history of each one. Chris Manfield will speak about his relationship with sequoia trees and the interwoven strings between family, trees, fire and politics based on his personal experiences and research.
Tree Talk is moderated by Sant Khalsa, ecofeminist artist and activist, whose work has focused on critical environmental and societal issues including forests and watersheds for four decades.
Co-sponsored by Joshua Tree Center for Photographic Arts
