About the Work
In the late 80s, scientists built an impenetrable bio-dome that contained an entire ecological system of different habitats. Many of the species flourished in that environment. However, trees did not. They grew quickly but soon became weak and fell over. The scientists realized that due to the lack of wind in the biosphere, the trees were not developing stresswood and could not thrive.
A tree develops stresswood in reaction to the wind. The wind causes the limbs to sway and move, placing stress on the tree. The tree, thus, develops stresswood to compensate. Stresswood makes the tree stronger and enables it to grow closer to the sun (the light).
I created this piece as a reminder to myself that past challenges in my life have strengthened me, and are helping me develop the fortitude to be unstoppable.

Giclée fine art printing is the gold standard when it comes to producing museum-quality prints. While many traditional printing technologies — such as lithography — use the classic CMYK 4-color combination, giclée printers use up to 12 individual colors, resulting in much smoother gradient transitions and a wider color spectrum. All prints are printed using water-based inks.
Hahnemühle German Etching Paper is a vegan-certified, heavy-duty paper. Its velvety matte surface is optimised for high-contrast prints and works brilliantly for limited editions. This museum-quality paper is extremely consistent and works perfectly with large, full color graphics.
