"This installation presented a surreal landscape focusing on the relationship between people and the environment. Large sculpted heads were scattered like boulders beneath copper trees. These "boulderheads" suggested the possibility of merging the human intelligence with the wisdom of nature.
The center of the installation featured a small tree, somewhat battered yet still seeming to express a sprightly vigor. The real stone that inspired the "boulderheads" lies just to the right of the tree.
The heads include faces suggesting my own family and a variety of ethnic groups - we are all in this together."
