Tree Rings 1801
Ash rings cross cut and burnt approx 400mm round and 30mm thick. Finished in acrylics and chalk.
These wall hangings are examining time - through the tree as a clock on the landscape. The dot pattern are moments in that passage of time up, through, along and out of the piece. The summer and winter growth rings are particularly apparent and the burning give the work a texture of ancient passage.
The ash was a wind blown tree grown on Lothian Estates, near Jedburgh, Scottish Borders.
