Heimo Wallner had just chopped down an old and ill cherry tree.I wanted to use material
from nature to create a three dimensional drawing and chose the tree as my starting point.
A thick branch of the tree put into space felt likemaking a mark with a big piece of charcoal -
thin,brittle and dry grass resembled lines made with a very hard and thin pencil.

Later I started to add heavier forms made out of wood, plaster and stones. Parts of the cherry tree, that were in a stage of transformation.
