Wood for the Trees - Disconnect I

A collection of 20 small format works, made in acrylics on reused palette wood.


A distortion of the colour and an exaggeration of the limb-like branches of the Stone Pine is used to bring the subject closer to the human - producing a dramatic and unsettling image. This image is then broken down into smaller units creating abstracted and ambiguous forms

The original is consequently no longer seen as a whole.

The Stone or Umbrella Pine is a tree with a robust root system -  a tree tolerant to poor soil and

a dry climate, a tree resistant to disease and pests, a tree used to stabilise and protect coastal areas

from dune erosion.
