soledad senlle art foundation

'at soledad senlle art foundation barbara rink has created forest field, an installation with upright trunks of rolled paper and drawings of branches. the finely drawn branches are reminiscent of old folk traditions where people would take a branch to their home in order for the tree spirit to protect them and bring well being. it is a poetic evaluation of the worth of paper and wood itself; bridging mythology with current environmental issues of deforestation.'
