BEETHOVEN - Fusion Frame Sculpture

Repurposed Antique Frame (early 1900s wood & gesso) unified with Fir Tree Branch reclaimed from Detroit Lake in the Willamette National Forest of Oregon.

Ludwig van Beethoven reached across musical styles to bridge the classical and the romantic. It seemed befitting to draw on his name for this work. A formal ornate frame and earnest natural branch united. I sourced the frame from an antique merchant on the Oregon Coast. The branch, I reclaimed a few years ago from Detroit Lake’s dry lakebed. At water levels that have not been as low since 1969.

I appreciate frame and branch and their harmonious composition as one — as Beethoven.
