Joseph Wheelwright: Tree Figures
May 2011- April 2013


Part lumberjack and part forester, artist Joseph Wheelwright creates
giant figures from trees found on his Vermont property. Root balls
are transformed into heads while bifurcated trunks become legs
on the inverted trees. Situated among the KMA’s majestic spruces,
Wheelwright’s uncanny figures look as though they, too, grow out of
the earth. The five sculptures, ranging in height from 17 to 27 feet,
are endowed with a peculiar human presence while firmly retaining
their identity as trees.
