Recently appointed as the new Leader of the New Mexico Film Office, Todd Christensen has spent the past couple of decades as a location scout. He is no stranger to trees, taking breaks on location to make a sketch at every opportunity. This show allows us to see Christensen’s trees in every light and season, each with a distinct personality. The work is certainly whimsical, but has a depth that comes from being a seasoned appreciator of nature.
From the artist:
“I have survived some challenging seasons and have grown stronger from them. I try to look at both trees and people with fascination, curiosity, a sense of wonder and awe.
Trees Talk and listen and continue. They are my political statement, my climate change statement and solution; they delight me always in all their shapes and configurations.”
Trees Talk is on exhibit all of August 2019
