The Art Gallery of York University is pleased to offer a signed and numbered, limited edition set of photographic prints by Vancouver artist, Rodney Graham. Each set is comprised of two archival silverprints which are framed and matted separately according to the artist's specification.

The concept of the inverted tree derives from the artist’s 1979 installation Camera Obscura where Graham set up a large camera obscura in the middle of the countryside with room in this specially constructed shed for a number of people to enter. The image of the upside down tree was projected onto the back wall of this room by means of a well known optical principle. Nature was thereby perceived through the device of this large apparatus, conveying the complexity involved in depicting the tree, uprooted and disconnected from its surroundings.

All proceeds raised support the programs of the Art Gallery of York University.
