See image by Karrie Ross with Haiku?... A chorus of voices -- sing a song singing it loud -- together unite
Artist Karrie Ross will be featured this Saturday at Topanga Canyon Gallery’s newest group exhibition. Karrie has been a member for the past four years and is proud to have “My Trees Talking” featured at Topanga Canyon Gallery.
The Million Trees LA initiative originally inspired Karrie’s upcoming exhibit. She explains, “The research for my October show led me to the Million Trees LA project and I learned they have helped distribute and plant around 350,000 trees to date.
So, I decided to make, “TREES” the focus and imagery for my show, I then pushed the process to form a question which became artwork and a book.
Ross continues, “My thoughts went to the “My ____ Talking” series of books I’m writing, then I asked, “How can I work another book in with this show?” with thoughts stirring, the concept finally came to me… “I’ll draw 1-100 trees and have them share a personalized haiku in the book and title it ‘My Trees Talking.’”
“My Trees Talking,” And they are Speaking Haiku!” is a book that partners 80 (of the 100) whimsical pen & ink tree drawings with a haiku.
The book along with the original drawings matted with a select few framed; a 60x48 painting, two table-top assemblage “tree” sculptures and a variety of smaller paintings will be in the exhibition.
These 100 pen & ink drawings will be available and a select few will be displayed as framed originals, giclee reproductions and as greeting cards. Also on display you’ll see the series bustier, two table-top size tree sculptures, a 60 x 48 Tree painting and a few smaller art pieces to balance it all out.
