I am so excited to be part of the ASC's 2014 spring Community Supported Art program. Playing off of the theme of a traditional CSA's focus on local food, I have created a series of photographs of plants native to NC. I spent time walking the winter woods to find branches, sprigs and grasses. From a collection of 10-15 plant samples and photographs I narrowed it down to the strongest five photographs for the CSArt submission. There are photos below of the plants used: sweet gum, river oats, pink muhly grass, hay-scented fern and oakleaf hydrangea. When I finished with photographs I asked my mother in law, Cecily Cerutti, to write a haiku inspired by the photos. I think the poetry compliments the images beautifully! I hope all who bought a CSArt share enjoy!
I will post photos of the final pieces with haikus once the work is revealed to the shareholders.
