The Last Tree debuts on May 4, 2013 with an opening reception May 10, 6-8pm.
OPEN HOURS: Tue-Sat 11am-6pm, Sun by appt
The Last Tree portrays the world’s 193 countries with fabricated silk organza tree stumps stuffed with human hair in pails. Hair is symbolic of a global humanity and survival of individual DNA. Soaring above the desolation is the last tree, an isolated final hope. Video/audio of tree chopping floats through the installation.
Over the last eighteen years Reingold has worked with these rather unusual materials in manifold ways to address the issues of beauty, poverty, and environment. Her best known works include a triptych, A Question of Beauty (2007), which chronicled the artist¡Çs own hair loss over 365 days, and a major installation, Hung Out In the Projects (2010), which reveals the "wreckage of humans trapped in a poverty." The latter, shown at the Morean Art Center, St. Petersburg, FL, helped earn a 2010 State of Florida Individual Artist Fellowship. Her solo shows include galleries in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Savannah, Buffalo, and St Petersburg; museum shows in Jersey City, Newark, Buffalo, and Tampa. She has works in countless private collections, including Savannah College of Art and Design, as well as in the collections of Newark Museum and Museum of Fine Art, St Petersburg, FL.back to events list
