“I’m not an abstractionist. I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.”

Christo and Jean Claude, Wrapped Trees, 1997-8

The artists had dreamt of wrapping trees in the 60’s as an environmental art installation and drew many preperatory drawings. 30 years later, in 1998, their dreams were realized in Switzerland. The wrapping was removed on December 14, 1998 and the materials were recycled. The artists did not accept any sponsorship and paid the expenses of the project themselves through the sale of original works to museums, private collectors and galleries.
