Deb Komitor: For the Love of Trees presented by Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region at Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, Colorado Springs CO

Enjoy a new series of work by inspiring local painter, Deb Komitor. "For the Love of Trees" celebrates the spiritual connection of the artist with trees, particularly since the Black Forest fire.

Deb says, "All my life I have felt a connection to trees. Growing up in the Midwest I was drawn to the smell of damp leaves and the dance of dappled sunlight in the cool comfort enclosure of the deep woods.

Trees convey a sense of permanence. They are my guardians.
When the wildfires came to Colorado Springs then Black Forest I saw how fleeting everything is. I lost the sense of permanence I felt in nature and gained a deep reverence. Feeling a strong need to record my relationship with trees I started this series 3 years ago and continue with it today.

As I have been creating these paintings, what started out as an act of gratitude has evolved into a deeper understanding of my thoughts, feelings, fears and dreams created within the subject of trees and forest. It feels like peeling away the skin of an onion, each layer revealing another, each year documenting another season of my life.

I invite you to surrender yourself to these ancient peaceful warriors."

The show is on exhibit in COPPeR's Office and Arts Info Space Monday-Fridays from 10:00am-4:00pm.
