In the Pines with Robert Wiens
Series: Landscape as Muse
Visual artist Robert Wiens explores the ancient pine forests of Temagami, Ontario. There is an old growth pine forest at the northern edge, unlike any other place on earth. Viewing his early works, he explains that he started as a sculptor and then moved to wood and drawings. All of his work is characterized by accumulation. Small gestures build up to something much larger. He explains what it is he is looking for as he treks deeper into the forest to seek tress that have been uncut and unmolested.
