Katherine Mitchell - Rain After Fire

Statement

I began this series of works six years ago when I discovered a white oak on my property had become diseased. Of course I began a long series of treatments for the tree, but I also began a series of poems, and drawings and paintings about the tree and its struggle to live. This led me to a long study of trees and their importance to our life on this planet. The tree is for me a symbol of all of nature and our threatened environment. I have been particularly moved by the “nature writing” of Henry David Thoreau, who said,”The forest is in all mythologies a sacred place.” Indeed!
