Beauty by Tacita Dean

Beauty if part of Tacita Dean’s series involving photographs of trees from the English Countryside. After blowing the photos up to huge scales, she applies white gouache to the surface while leaving the tree untouched.

Beauty was on display when I visited the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. This piece is even more beautiful in person. There is something that is both calming and haunting about the piece. It automatically transported me back to my childhood.
