“It is no exaggerated praise to call a tree the grandest and most beautiful of all the productions of the earth”. With these words, the artist and theorist William Gilpin (1724-1804) opened his influential treatise Remarks on Forest Scenery and other Woodland Views (1791).
Having worked for the last decade on the subject of a particular Oak Tree from Richmond Park, I thought it appropriate to share the location of such source of inspiration.
An invitation to contemplate.
And an invitation to visit our Turning Tides Contemporary Art Stand (G7) at the XX Affordable Art Fair Batterse, London, where the work Surrender II will be shown in the Uk for the first time together with my latest paintings and original Prints .
Do get in touch if you would like to attend the Fair.
