The Native Trees of Canada
"While shopping in the Monkey's Paw bookstore, Leanne Shapton happened upon an old edition of the government reference book, The Native Trees of Canada, originally published in 1917 by the Canadian Department of Northern Affairs and National Resources. Most people would simply view the book as a dry cataloguing of a boring subject. Shapton, however, was immediately enchanted by the dusty compilation, saw beauty in the technical details and was inspired to create her own artistic interpretation of The Native Trees of Canada as a present for her fiance..." "Renowned artist and designer Leanne Shapton has taken a century-old book and reinterpreted it in a series of bold, painted images. Shapton takes the otherwise complex objects of trees and strips them down into stark, almost abstract shapes and colors. She distills each subject into its simplest form, using vivid colors in lush gouache paint. Her passion is evident in each painting: the water birch is represented as two pulsating red bulbs contrasted against a grey backdrop; the eastern white pine is represented by a close up of its leaves against a radiant summer sky."
