“The Trees Lament”: Images and Symbols of Grief
For millennia, cultures around the world have used images of trees and plants to depict experiences of death. Whether representing the pain of a traumatic loss or the hope of the afterlife, the pain of separation or the peace of eternal rest, trees have proved to be a nuanced and flexible image for the bereaved.
Investigating a variety of cultural traditions, origin stories, myths, literature, folk songs, and her own personal experience, artist Meredith Tenney-Free presents the archetypal power of tree imagery to capture individual and communal experiences of bereavement.
