See the Trees for the Forest
 

 

Series: "See the Trees for the Forest"

Paper clay with mixed media. Smallest 2 ft. h - tallest 7.5 ft. h.

"In her "See the Trees for the Forest" series, spindly tree branches-tender saplings or dead driftwood? - are wrapped in thick bases of what looks like ceramic bandages-embraced? restrained? It's not clear, nor is it meant to be. For Toth, the natural elements are filtered through conceptualist thinking, which tills the soil between artistic will and natural process... the strongest work remains her bandaged trees, which exist in some between state, neither alive nor dead, half-art, half-nature. The ambiguity is fetching."

Josef Woodard, Los Angeles Times
