Art Installation Contemplates Balance in Wake of Pine Beetle Epidemic

Table of Contents


Two Rivers Gallery in Prince George addresses the current pine beetle epidemic using an installation called Balance that brings together human and tree forms. Drawing an important link between nature, human beings and our community, artist Peter von Tiesenhausen created a 20-foot-tall iron and bronze sculpture centrally located in the City of Prince George. Arts Partners invested in the Two Rivers Gallery project to bring the work of this internationally renowned artist to Prince George. Von Tiesenhausen is familiar with the area, having produced a 2005 exhibition Requiem- art that explored the relationship between humans and the pine forest.
