The paper birch tree gets its name from the way its bark peels back into ultra-thin layers. This four-part collage by Owen Mortensen explores the tonal and textural changes that occur within these various strata. Collected from the same tree, each sheet of bark has been meticulously cut with scientific precision and separated to reveal its unique character. This set is versatile in its arrangement—hang individually or in a square or horizontal grouping.
