These ‘tree portraits’ are simply stunning. When I think of portraiture, I usually think of human, and possibly a dog here and there. The use of naming to provoke a different context is very powerful. These portraits make you think of each of these trees as a life, something that has existed, that needs documentation. Probably more, but I won’t go on. Sometimes the simplest works of art can provoke the most meaning.
Müge is a graphic designer. My heart skips a beat a little when I find more and more trained graphic designers acting as artists, and other such creation-based professions. The professional terms are starting to blend, and it’s seeping out everywhere. The question is, now where do we find ourselves?
