Unbe-leaf-able

When autumn comes there are always a variety of vivid leaves on the ground. My piece was inspired by Andy Goldsworthy because he often uses leaves to produce his artwork. Leaves are something so simple and so beautiful individually but when you form something out of a group of them it can create something unimaginably beautiful. I had a little extra time so I created a piece inspired by Christo and Andy. Christo is most famously known for covering objects with a fabric. So instead of fabric, I used leaves to cover a tree branch. The idea behind this was that it was symbolic and in a way devastating. Representing the fear of letting go.
