Paintings of a single tree in a field near West
Bergholt, Essex, made over three years. Smaller pieces were made
outdoors, larger ones in the studio using outdoor colour studies
and analysed digital images.
In his book "Nature Cure"
Richard Mabey has this to say about writing "...I believe
that language and imagination, far from alienating us from nature,
are our most powerful and natural tools for re-engaging with it...
Culture isn't the opposite or contrary of nature. It's the
interface between us and the non-human world, our species' semi-permeable
I think the same can be said for painting.
