Wisteria Trunk at Mission Santa Clara de Asis

Chinese Wisteria planted in the 1860’s in the old quadrangle of The Mission Santa Clara de Asis, it pre-dates the existing mission building. The forms in this ancient vine trunk evoke a past wrought with subjugation, and also how we can see ourselves in pattern.

Recently, this rare early planting has been scarred by abuse, several inch round bark scrapes at the old base protrude, scraffed. UPDATE– Coming with fall and winter moist the green moss has covered the scarrings.

Print size: 13×19 in.
