More Tree Artists

I just want to make mention of an artist I have stumbled upon recently.  Katie Holten does life sized tree installations called, “Excavated Trees”.  Here trees appear with both branches and roots as if the had been ripped from the ground (hence “excavated”).  What makes this more interesting is that the trees are made entirely from materials found on site, and therefor have a sort of organic natural relationship to their surroundings.  The materials are not necessarily organic, Holten often installs in institutions and therefore easily find raw building materials, paper, art supplies, etc.  Yet, we get a sense of the home grown theme of her work.  I am interested in the concept of how tree reflect the environment in which they grow.
