Lucas Reiner has often used trees as a motif, including those in a series of etchings portraying the Stations of the Cross for St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. He also paints images of the trees of Los Angeles. Some have been radically trimmed to accommodate urban living and now reflect the impact the city has on nature’s ability to adapt and survive. Reiner says, “I now see Los Angeles differently, especially the insistent dedication of nature to grow in spite of the restrictions placed upon it…” Since 2005, Reiner has also explored the atmospheric effects of fireworks.
