These overlapping trees, not even from the same country, come together in a copper and teal profusion of branches, lending themselves to an abstraction of overgrowth.

The larger branches are from a lone tree in Cimitière du Père Lachaise in Paris; the collection of smaller trees riverside is from Lake Sammamish State Park in Washington.
