Somewhere in our daily wanderings we came across Sylvia Plimack Mangold‘s trees. They are amazingly wonderful depictions of the treeness, really. She’s made MANY, often of the same tree, like the Maple, below. We found a pleasurable trove of her work at Alexander and Bonin.
As we looked, we thought of this haiku by W.S. Merwin:
How time disappears
while we live under
the big tree.
