New. Year.

“This looks like a tree, but it is an average, ordinary, everyday, boring tree. Breathe life into it. Make it bend — trees are flexible, so they don’t snap. Scar it, give it a twisted branch, perfect trees don’t exist. Nothing is perfect. Flaws are interesting. Be the tree.” — Laurie Halse Anderson

Heartfelt Wishes for a Twisted, Imperfect New Year!

IMAGE: woman as a tree, Geof Kern, 1996. The Fahey/Klein Gallery writes: “Kern’s multifaceted style combines photography and illustration and redefines the traditional photographic genres of fashion and still life. He uses fabricated sets and pseudo-suburban scenes to mock the mundane. Steering away from high profile models, Kern prefers neighbors, acquaintances, and locals to take stage in his fanciful constructed realities. His approach to the “everyday” and domestic subject matter is riddled with irony, imagination, and subtle humor.” For more of his work, visit www.geofkern.com.
