Out of the Wood Exhibition

A phoenix tree is one which has fallen in a catastrophic event, often blown down in a storm. If the tree still has some roots intact and in contact with the earth, it will continue to grow from its new horizontal position, its existing structures adjusting to support and sustain it for decades or even centuries to come. This series of oil, oil pastel and charcoal works made during the Coronavirus lockdown in the spring of 2020.
