Exuviae: an animal's cast or sloughed skin, especially that of an insect larva.

The human-like molted skins are left behind by a creature dependent on life in the trees to survive.

These tree installations began during my artist-in-residence at the Mary Anderson Center in Indiana. A permanent installation of Exuviae are on view at Coffman Park in Dublin, Ohio. Other installations have been exhibited at Yew Dell Gardens in Crestwood, Kentucky.
