Field Dressing, 2011
“Field Dressing” was created through Meg’s non-linear, emotive flow of ideas. The work is a free associative visual diary, directly reflecting the world and experience within it. Process is integral to Meg’s work. She chose wood burning, because of its familiarity to her Michigan upbringing. Using soon to be demolished tree/bushes, Meg de-limbed them, and then created new limbs with decorated manufactured wood scrap that she collected She then re-composed a new, manufactured landscape, now existing as live wood, dead wood, and burnt wood.
