Red Trees

Lee Tracy

RED TREES, started in the year 2000, and is in progress. A long-term project of 5 phases that memorializes our forests. This artwork conveys a sense of loss, the dynamic relationship between humans and the natural world, and the hope born of persistence.

Red fabric covered over 300 cut trees for one year and were bleached by the sun with impressions of the last breath of the tree. The “shrouds” have traveled from western to eastern locations in the US and have undergone years of transformation by interacting with life’s essential elements; earth, sun, air, water and ether.
