Clothespins Tree Wraps by Gerry Stecca

Patiently hand drilling and threading thousands of clothespins with wire, artist Gerry Stecca creates flexible "sheets" that wrap around tall tree trunks like armour. Mostly non representational, these shapes and installations gain life and form, growing and expanding like a virus in a perfect environment as they are constructed, ever surprising the artist and challenging the imagination. "I like this kind of work because I'm not thinking about what I'm doing," Stecca says. "Once I have a direction, my mind just wanders and I could be thinking about anything, until I get poked by the wires and start bleeding and come back to earth."
