´Disconnect I´ is a collection of 20 small format works, made in acrylics on reused palette wood.
The protagonist is the Stone Pine - 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.
A distortion of the colour and an exaggeration of the limb-like forms 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 which becom abstracted and more palatable. The original is consequently no longer seen as a whole.
