Art Display: Cantos From the Woods by David Flood
David Flood’s work leads him into forests to encounter how the fundamental forces of nature act on the figure of wood. Lightning strikes a tree, wind or rain batter it, frost heaves its roots. Ice breaks limbs from trunks, legions of ants leave their calligraphic prints on the soft wood beneath the bark, man and machine wade through…all are alike leaving behind dead wood. He has produced natural art from wood for over 25 years. His works have shown at galleries and public spaces in the U.S. as well as in Thailand and Sri Lanka. He maintains a studio in Ipswich, MA.
