Tom Nakashima : Berryville Tree Piles and Structures
Japanese-American artist Tom Nakashima created a series of small to monumental size images (the widest is 28 ft.) of piles of trees cut down by developers, dilapidated buildings and abandoned factories. Although they appear to be highly realistic paintings from a few yards away, they’re actually collages of tiny pieces of paper torn from magazines and newspapers.
