This drawing was inspired by the astounding fact that we share 50% of our DNA with trees, connecting us with our leafy kin in more ways than one. For instance, the trunk of a tree and the human spine are both main lines of communication that send messages and signals to other parts of our bodies; tree roots -- like our feet and toes -- connect us to our respective foundations; bark acts as a layer of protection, just like our skin. When we recognize our primordial connection to nature, we are able to better understand ourselves as being inextricably intertwined with it. Series 2022. 6" W x 9" L. Colored ink on eco-friendly, cold-pressed, heavyweight archival paper. Ships worldwide.
