Scientists have discovered the world’s oldest forest in an abandoned quarry near Cairo, New York. The 385-million-year-old rocks contain the fossilized woody roots of dozens of ancient trees. The find marks a turning point in Earth’s history. When trees evolved these roots, they helped pull carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and lock it away, radically shifting the planet’s climate and leading to the atmosphere we know today.

I’m so happy to welcome my friend and a wonderful, committed and important artist, Ernest Daetwyler to the Broken Forest Group. Please take a look at the Images page for some views of Ernest’s past work. For me, these works have always been about synthesizing art with nature and building a sustainable balance between humanity and the forest.
Ernest Daetwyler studied at the Schule für Gestaltung, Bern, Switzerland, the Centro Europeo in Venice, Italy and received his master diploma from the Schule für Gestaltung, St. Gallen, Switzerland.
His multidisciplinary exhibitions and public interventions/art projects are being presented in Canada and internationally. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, Pro Helvetia, Switzerland, the Swiss Federal Office of Culture, Presence Suisse, the Ontario Association of Art Galleries (OAAG) 2010 Exhibition of the Year Award, the Region of Waterloo Arts Fund, the Arts Award Waterloo Region in Visual Arts and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, New York, N.Y.
Check out Marek Mikrut on our Images page. He plays a mean Jew’s Harp and his soft, joyful landscapes seem to conjur up childhood memories of the forests he visits. Here’s a beauty. More images by Marek Mikrut are at: BFG Images page
