Title:
Fruits of the Forest

Author:
Paul Tuppeny

Description:
The project signposts a new self-identity for our species within the world. Through re-appropriated signs, the work urges a re-appraisal of our relationship with nature. The forest floor is adopted as symbol of our primal orientation, as the plane from which life pushes forth and to which it finally returns. The signs carry images of a forest floor and blue sky. The lower portions have head shape openings allowing viewers to behold themselves (and others) against the forest floor context. When we view ourselves against the forest floor, our vulnerability becomes palpable once more.
