Reitzenstein exhibit to open in Toronto

Published April 4, 2013

“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.
