Honey, turmeric, birch trees
The trunks of birch trees have been coated in honey, and then a layer of turmeric, creating the appearance of golden stems stretching out of the ground. An unexpected similarity to my paintings is the disembodied quality of the forms. The light and colour seem to come from within the trees and ground, suggesting that they float in space. Considering that the woodland is adjacent to the orchards and the work of bees I hope there is a conceptual as well as visual link to the secret life of this very special site.
