reKINDLED - FAMILY TREES
I’ve been painting a collection of tree ‘portraits’ into tiny silver dishes for a show with friends based on the loose theme of nostalgia.
I chose which trees to paint based on anecdotes collected from family and friends about trees they remembered from childhood. Interestingly it seems we are quite sentimental about experiences & places, as well as objects from our past - I wanted to explore this idea by placing a memory of a tree inside these little heirlooms, to frame them and capture their preciousness.
A group show in conjunction with Samantha Mackie, Colleen Southwell and Jane Gerrish, upstairs at Saint Cloche Gallery Oct 2019.
