Title:
Redwood Cabinet

Author:
Madeline von Foerster

Description:
Approximately 95% of the original ancient coastal redwood forest has been logged. Incredibly, 82% of redwoods lack protection today, and may be logged. The plants and animals shown here all depend on old-growth redwood forests for their survival. My painting, partly based on the research of botanist Steven Sillet, is a visual altar to this ecosystem. It includes some of his discoveries from the forest canopy, such as an arboreal salamander who never touches the ground, and microscopic freshwater crabs who survive in the damp detritus which accumulates over centuries on the tree branches.
