Verse of the Coast: Yellow Tree
Shenshen Dou, MS

Inspired by the unique landscape of the Pacific Northwest coast, this collage was made from a selection of local handmade paper and traditional Chinese rice paper with ink patterns. This work is part of a 10-piece Verse of the Coast series, each piece like the phrase of a poem. In this segment, the wind-bent trees and the rock are the focus of the narrative.

Ms Dou worked as a molecular biologist and is an artist living in West Linn, OR. More of her artwork can be seen in other issues of The Permanente Journal.
