Forest - inspired works

Monday, November 21, 2022

Andrews Forest-inspired works of photographer David Paul Bayles and designer David Buckley Borden (and his U of Oregon landscape architecture students) have been featured in gallery shows in far-flung places.  Borden’s Ghost Forests exhibit in the Trustman Art Gallery at Simmons University in Boston contains wood and metal pieces inspired by pine cones, stools used to insulate fire lookouts from lightning strikes, and other prompts characteristic of the Pacific Northwest forests.  Samples of Bayles’s Following Fire: A Resilient Forest / An Uncertain Future project in burned forest have been displayed in the Wildling Museum in Solvang, California, and the Baldwin Photographic Gallery at Middle Tennessee State University. Artist presentations were part of all these shows. See their personal webpages to get a sense of the amazing sweep of their creativity:
