Wildfire  Tree of life No5   by Regina Valluzzi


Available to buy on…

Acrylic with texture gels (acrylic media) on canvas. 18 × 18 inches
The tree motif is used in a variety of contexts to symbolize and represent branched structures, heredity, relatedness and interconnectivity. The tree is a powerful symbol of interedependence and ecological order. Actual trees not onbly symbolize the ecology, they are also very important actors in preserving balance on earth. Here the state of the tree symbol is used to represent a danger to actual trees. The tree/ tree symbol is damaged, with disappearing small branches. Pumice infused acrylic soft gel medium and other textured acrylic media were used to create an ashy, fragile appearance in the tree form while at the same time rendering it 3-D and substantial. The swirling reds and yellows in the background underscore the feeling of heat and danger.

    I love it. Regina, please submitt this image to our group challenge “GAIA third Host”, if you like to be host of GAIA. Congratulations, it is very very beautiful image.

  • Thanks for the feature. I’m not sure I have the time to dedicate to hosting right now – organizing a few offline shows and acting as webmaster etc. for a largish artists group locally.

    You need to specify that this was painted in acrylics in order to be accepted, beautiful work though.

  • Sorry – I thought that pumice media and the other types of texture gels only existed in acrylics
