Suzanne Rose, profoundly concerned with the environment, seeks to expose the effects of human interaction on nature. In this exhibition, she shows once majestic trees that have become victims of human violence—stripped, amputated, dissected. The magnetic, direct images evoke crime scene photos of battered women. Moreover, Rose asks the viewer to become an active witness to the crime by providing the GPS coordinates of every tree in her titles. She embeds a map of this ongoing history of violence and alters the experience of the artwork.
