Midnight at the Hanging Tree

(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2020

Since I first read the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins (and watched the movies) I have been intrigued by James Newton Howard’s enigmatic song “The Hanging Tree” which seems to play a key and pivotal role in the development of the story. I have made several efforts in different mediums at conceptualizing or ekphrasticing it. The version of MIDNIGHT AT THE HANGING TREE shown here is a paper collage using recycled and repurposed advertising and packaging cardboard and references in particular the movie scene at the hydroelectric dam. (2020) (20” x 16”) ($125)
