These drawings of tree parts transforming into lumber have no particular agenda or strict angle of view; they can seem sad and humorous, pointless and necessary all at once. My conscious intent was to keep the images ambivalent and object-based and to focus primarily on visual associations made from the actual lumber-making process. Treating the images as object-based continued further then I first planned, for here tree as object transforms into lumber as object, as the finished material is still in such a raw state as to have an undecided future.
