Alison Moritsugu paints landscapes on exteriors of sliced logs

During 18th & 19th centuries when settlers from Europe came and quickly spread out their terrain across North America the belief prevalent was of Manifest Destiny. More specifically these American settlers were certain to spread out all through the continent by all means necessary notwithstanding cost, ecological impact, / demoralizing harm to the American populations present. This period’s artwork that mostly consisted of extensive country sides and had an influence of European rural tradition did an excellent job of capturing the unspoiled prettiness of the continent that has not been documented before. Artist Alison Moritsugu in the log paintings of her comes against that weird juxtaposition by opting for remnants of downed trees as the canvas for the bucolic oil paintings he does of the landscape that might be the origin of that same tree.
