Hear At Last 

Patrick Dougherty, Trailheads, maple and sweet gum saplings, each 30" x 25" x 10', 2005.

"I build a matrix from the architecture of the natural world. For Trailheads, I incorporated the heads and shoulders of three figures over 35 feet tall. Each head is actually woven around the crown of the trees. Those were cherry trees that served as the spinal columns and heads. The idea there was that the trees themselves exerted a face: You could look through the trees and see something looking back at you."

<i>"My early work employed procedures used in postmortem examination, dissection, and cross-sectional photography in order to better understand the internal characteristics of common objects. Specific household objects were chosen based on their sociocultural associations and were disassembled following scientific protocol. Video documentation of their painstaking deconstruction is exhibited alongside the object's remains.</i>

<i><i>"This image shows four great trees that have stood their ground as a meandering stream has cut a path around them. I spent a lot of time building these trees which are about 18 inches tall, or should I say were about 18 inches tall. Standing in the water gradually destroys them since the plaster gradually dissolves and the branches fall off. This is true of most of the work I do."</i></i>
