Art Description

Collage: Color, Digital, Metal, Dye Transfer and Paint on Wood.

I was inspired to make these works while out on a walk in the countryside, looking at isolated trees in fields, I thought, they would be great to photograph and then print onto gold leaf! I hope the viewer of these pictures will connect with the preciousness of nature while viewing them.
An important element of the work is that each piece is unique and, over the years, will tarnish and change in appearance. As the gold background metamorphoses it will become more atmospheric and dramatic. I love the idea that each piece will age differently. Each piece will forever acquire more drama as time oxidises the gilde.
