“Seed Trees,” an exhibition of work by Reinhard Reitzenstein, associate professor and head of the sculpture program, Department of Visual Studies, will on display from April 6-27 in the Olga Korper Gallery, 17 Morrow Ave., Toronto.
An opening reception will be held from 2-6 p.m. April 6.
The exhibition features new work in bronze and stone, images of mosses from the forest floor and a series of drawings representing seed trees. Seed trees are presumably left standing to provide seedlings in forest areas after clear-cut operations.They also may provide a sense of hope for the recovery of the forest. Reitzenstein’s drawings depict the trees as iconic, solitary, survivors, both heroic and vulnerable.
