Holly Hazelton

ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a visual artist who grew up knowing, loving, and connecting with the trees and landscape of Iowa. After a storm in 2020 destroyed 70% of the beloved and iconic tree canopy in my hometown of Cedar Rapids, I began investigating the role trees play in my formative and current experiences of landscape and place. Through the lenses of loss, memory, and ecological grief, my current work explores our changed relationship to trees and landscapes after natural disaster and human intervention.
