A naked tree, sleeping, anchored on a rock
And the illusion is nearly perfect.

One thinks of Japanese gardens, the bonsai,
All miniature replicas of our universe

Paul-Andre Leblanc creates such trees. Recycling copper wire that would otherwise be disposed of, he uses one of earth’s natural elements to sculpt trees.

These sculptures are displayed on tables or pedestals, and draw the eye irresistibly.

Each tree, each branch, is unique.

You imagine the sap circulating, you observe the trunks with their youthful whims, or their wrinkles of age.
