Portraits Drawn on Tree Stumps and Logs Explore the Transitory Nature of Things

Last August during a two week residency in Northern California, San Francisco based artist Claudia Bicen created a contemplative art project in the forest exploring the relationship between transience and well-being. Bicen found sites in the woods and meticulously depicted local faces on tree stumps and logs deep in the forest. Inspired by Japanese philosophy, the portraits were left untreated and vulnerable to the elements-allowing for a delicate process of decay and eventual absorption into the earth.
