(artist blurb here) In North Woods Tom McDonald reflects upon his long-enduring passion for the wilderness, celebrating its formative presence in the social, familial, and spiritual aspects of his life. Influenced by early Italian renaissance altarpieces as well as the pop art period, the pieces in this exhibition demonstrate a nostalgia that is in one moment comical, in another deeply meaningful. North Woods presents a skillful series of reminiscent reliquaries that honor the artist's outdoor experiences, both past and present.
