Based on a dream, this series of drawings takes inspiration from Rogier van der Weyden’s Descent from the Cross, Bach’s Passion According to St. Matthew, Francis Bacon’s reflections on the archetypal nature of human suffering, as well as Louise Bourgeois’ deeply feminine sculptural expressions of suffering. To create her works, the artists lies on paper in order to leave an imprint. The contact, she explains, reflects “the experience of inhabiting a body.” Over the course of the series, the image of the body transforms into a tree thus inspiring the title of the show.
