Bitter/Sweet

Bitter/Sweet
ICEHOUSE Project Space REOPENS
August 14, 4-6 with Linda Stillman's installation, "Bitter/Sweet"

 "During the Coronavirus lockdown, I found refuge in daily walks along my street in Hillsdale. Trying to identify the roadside plants, I discovered that almost all of them were non-native invasives. My growing awareness of the dangers of these plants coincided with our growing understanding of the invading virus. The coronavirus model, round with orange spikes around the edges, inspired the circle motifs of the installation; the orange represents threat and warning.Invasive plants are a huge threat to our environment, robbing native plants of light, water, and nutrients, and leading to a loss of biodiversity.

"Learning to identify and name the plants and distinguish them from similar benign species was the first step in my research.I eventually narrowed my focus to the 12 most destructive invasives in our area. In the tradition of the amateur artist/naturalist, I painted images of the plants on round canvases with their common and Latin names, outlined in orange. These tondi are arranged in a clock-like circle, hinting at the urgency of preserving biodiversity."
 
Other components of the installation are a superscaled Bittersweet vine wreath and a frieze of painted slices of Norway maple logs.
