Staging Cyr's Person Tree House Photo

September's First Friday at the PoetHouse consisted of a themed show by the residents. Back in May, Tom Monson led us through a little exercise used by psychologists to analyze clients. They are given the task to draw three things- a person, a tree, and a house- in a short period of time with a crayon. We did this as a group, and answered questions about our drawings. Then we were given a few months to reinterpret our drawing as a piece of art work.

The results were interesting and reflected each of us. Sarah M. created a soft sculpture. Kera Tucker covered a piece of wood in paint and then etched out her images. Jo Lundberg painted on top of photographs. Cyr staged a shoot out near Tumalo State Park. I collaged of course.
