Toothpicks may be one result of the growth of trees, but toothpicks are mere details, details that are thrown away. The substance, the real stuff, are the trees themselves. I am trying to construct the substantiality of great trees, like Redwoods. I want my art to stand straight and tall, look good, but also demand the emotional attention of its viewers. A majestic tree stands out in the forest. I have to measure the significance of my art while alone, but you, the viewer, are most important. This is all about communication, human to human, and not about picking detritus out of teeth.
