DESCRIPTION:  Undergrowth is the continuation of Jennifer Trask’s “Vestige” Series. The conceit is that the frame has collapsed on itself and the botanical hybrids spring from the decay. “Undergrowth” contains fragments from three antique frames and two wall sconces blended together. There are python and rattlesnake rib mums, poinsettia like flowers made with inner ear bones from deer, and a large mum made from beaver teeth, cow and snake bones.

Trask received her MFA from SUNY New Paltz. Her work is part of the collections of the Museum of Arts and Design, NY, Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery, Washington, DC, and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Texas. In 2011 she was named Fellow in Sculpture/Crafts by the New York Foundation in the Arts.
