Engraved images carved into bluestone suggest fragments of a magnificent tree - shadows of the Tree of Knowledge. Dappled amongst the imagery are literary quotes personally selected by library donors. Each piece contributes to the whole while remaining individual representing the imprint of the community on the plaza.
About the artists:
Jacqueline Metz and Nancy Chew are visual artists who started working collaboratively in 1997. Nancy's background is drawing, print-making, curating and teaching while Jacqueline's is photography, archeaology and literature. These disciplines, crafts and processes conflate to create an art practice that is conceptual and abstract yet uniquely grounded in place.
