Kurt Lightner - Installation shots / branch details

Kurt Lightner's carved branches

These three works are connected to the large tree project in progress. The branches come from a Box Elder tree cut down on his family farm in Troy Ohio. The carved words are passages from his great-great grandfather's diaries.
