Altered

Kimberly Roush's avatar Kimberly Roush

This work is a collection of skeleton leaves. Assembled clusters of flowing forms that fill up a somewhat quiet space, allowing the viewers to spend time with the work. With the intentions of leaving those who experience it with notions of fragility and instilling ideas of impermanence and temporality. The skeletonization of these leaves began with a broken tree branch. Selected, sorted, boiled, rinsed, rinsed again, left to decompose, scraped, chemically altered, rinsed, then rinsed again, and dried. When the work is encountered, turbulence is created. If we are still, the leaves settle. In quiet moments, reflecting on our surroundings, the realization of how much everything is altered becomes significant. Chemically changed. Scattered fragments, remnants of what once was, shadows of the degraded landscape.
