Reinhard Reitzenstein's solo exhibition "WTF (Where’s the Forest)" brings the remains of a full tree covered in beeswax into Buffalo Arts Studio. The unexpected encounter with the tree and its scent within the former automotive plant points to the complicity of the industrial past and gentrified present in the production of greenhouse gasses and eradication of green spaces necessary to counteract global warming. Also included will be large scale woodcuts and a massive wall drawing of a tree formed by repetitively writing the tree’s name. The large-scale woodcuts are being produced at Mirabo Studios.
