'roots & vines: plastica' - CoCA Seattle

'roots & vines: plastica'      Barbara De Pirro
(plastic fiber, cable & steel)

A mysterious unexpected form,
distant imagery,
familiar in an intimate way.
A web of fiber,
a tangle of forest vine,
exposed and twisted roots,
fibrous tendrils clinging to the surface,
enveloping the decaying wood,
humbly feeding off the unforgotten.
Natures cycle of decay and rebirth,
regeneration, renewal….life.
