This artwork represents a significant milestone in my artistic journey. It is (for me) a monumental piece, spanning a width of 88 feet (26.8 meters) and comprising 19 intricately crafted passages (although based on installation approach it will comply to the required maximum size allowed for entry) The creation of this scroll required a dedicated commitment of nearly six months. Through this expansive work, my intention was to articulate my deep reverence for the forestal environment, in particular the centuries-old trees and the vast expanse of the Universe. It stands as a tribute, offering a transcendent gateway to a realm beyond our current understanding—intricately interwoven within an unfathomable network.
After completing this ambitious project, I positioned the artwork in two distinct settings: firstly, a formal gallery and then deep into the El Dorado National Forest in Northern California, USA.
One aspect that profoundly impacted me within the final forest installation was the captivating interplay of light and shadows cast through the towering trees. It bestowed a sublime and ethereal quality upon the artwork, unveiling unexpected moments of beauty. The passages themselves echo the intricate patterns, historical narratives, and treasured memories ingrained within these woods—my cherished trees—whispering their profound tales. The ancient 200-foot trees lent their historic voices in a harmonious exchange.
Simultaneously, as I unveiled the installation within the gallery setting, I gained a profound appreciation for the artwork's ability to evolve and respond to its environment, much like the ever-changing nature of humanity. It exists as a distinct entity, evoking a sense of enchantment, transformation, and spiritual resonance. Its boundless possibilities transcend the confines of my own imagination.
