When thinking of New Landscapes, the idea of deforestation and developing land is what came to mind. Laid to Rest is a collage that makes commentary on the modern world, building never stops, we always want bigger and better things. While doing so we are destroying natural environments and tossing trees aside like its nothing. For this collage, I wanted to give a tree a soul, rather than it being just a tree. I also wanted to create the collage on a slab of wood, to make reference on where paper comes from. As a way for people to think about how we get the simple things that we use, since it is easy to put these things in the back of our mind and never truly grasp the process.
