New Skin is part of a series of tree bark figures that are meant to represent some of the individual characteristics shared by trees and humans. New Skin represents the common characteristic of both trees and humans naturally exfoliating their skin. The sculpture is made entirely from birch and hickory shag bark. Both are trees that naturally shed their bark or "skin". beckygrismer.com
