The Souls of our Earth

Bristlecone Pines are among the oldest living beings and the oldest trees on earth. They may reach an age up to 4’800 years. Due to the high altitude, cold temperatures, dry climate and strong winds these trees grow extremely slowly. They live so long that their bark facing the weather exposed side gradually erodes and reveals its inner core while the bark facing south continues to prosper. What is special about them is that the traces of time become visible. They may be evidence that our notion of time is relative.

Standing in these ancient forests, the guardians of our planet‘s wisdom, I felt a deep respect for these creatures and as part of a whole.

With my artworks I want to express not only the beauty of Bristlecone Pines. But also that we need to protect, respect, understand, and reconnect with all natural sanctuaries.
