“Aspires” was created by Mitchell Dillman.
Colorado Springs artist Mitchell Dillman calls attention to the thousands of acres of timber across Colorado that have been killed by wildfire or pine beetles – and of the creative potential so often to be found within disaster.
Milled locally from pine trees killed in the Waldo Canyon and Black Forest Fires, Dillman’s pure geometric forms celebrate the community’s ability to rise from the ashes, making something beautiful from something wasted “through the thoughtful use of our often overlooked local resources.”
