1. having the size, form, or characteristics of a tree; treelike.
2. a term used by the French thinkers Deleuze and Guattari to characterise thinking marked by insistence on totalising principles, binarism and dualism. The term, first used in A Thousand Plateaus (1980) where it was opposed to the rhizome, comes from the way genealogy trees are drawn: unidirectional progress, with no possible retroactivity and continuous binary cuts (thus enforcing a dualist metaphysical conception, criticised by Deleuze).
Etymology: from Latin arborēscēns, present active participle of arborēscō, “become a tree”.
Jim Morrison during a performance at the Hollywood Bowl, 1968.

Olga Klimova started creating art as a result of deep and mystical experiences followed by a practice of Vipassana meditation. The memory of the blissful state of being able to connect to a deeper level of consciousness created the urge to share this experience with the world.
“…Putting the mind aside and trusting the flow of creation, listening to the painting and one’s own subconscious, not trying to control what’s happening and letting go – all are very useful skills not only during painting,” she says, “but in life.” - Olga Klimova
