Suspended Tree Sculptures By Jorge Mayet

Jorge Mayet‘s tree sculptures created from paper, wire, fabric, and acrylic showcase the ways in which a tree’s roots often mimic the branches that sprout above ground. In these suspended works the underground systems are far more extensive than what appears above the earth, showing the viewer that what typically seems before us is only half of the real picture. Hanging from obscure wires, Mayet works are a conceptual connection to his memories and roots growing up in Cuba, a visual metaphor for being eradicated from his home country.
