  • Description of the work

    Before I was a tree is part of the collection of the same name. The work deals with the artist's gaze towards human rejections and more particularly vis-à-vis the industrialization of the tree.

    It was in 2018 that François Xavier Laloi created this piece with the intention of recreating a semblance of a tree from a single palette. However, it is not a question of finding the tree itself but, more modestly, the image of the tree that once was.

    This is a unique piece produced in 1 single copy.

    Comes with certificate of authenticity.
