Mobilia Gallery presents Liz Alpert Fay: Tree skirt series

“This ongoing series of sculptures celebrates the beauty of the natural world and expresses my concerns for our dwindling natural resources, especially the trees. Each artwork begins with inspiration derived from a specific piece of found wood. I am discovering this wood in piles destined for the wood stove, or wastefully abandoned by the side of the road. When these ordinary pieces of wood are viewed more closely, their individuality and inherent beauty becomes evident. To entice the viewer to have a closer look, I am surrounding these pieces of wood with textile “skirts”. It’s in these skirts that clues to the meaning behind each sculpture can be found."

"I have always had a passion for textiles, and embrace the opportunity to revive and experiment with lesser-known textile techniques. I thrive on the richness of color and texture achieved while working with fabric, wool, dye and thread.”

- Liz Alpert Fay
