About this Event

Meet the Artist Gustavo Espinosa

Join us as we chat with artist Gustavo Espinosa about his latest exhibition The Essence of Trees, currently exhibition in the Studio Gallery.

Saturday 21 September, 2-4pm

-----------------------------------------

"The essence of trees is wood; heartwood, sapwood and bark. In the life of a tree, it is the wood which grows. Leaves, blossom seeds, needles and cones are ephemeral; they pass with the seasons, but the wood of the tree endures.

These images are made from photographs of a wide variety of trees: growing trees, dying trees, trees cut down or fallen, rotting wood returning to the earth. The photographs were made on walks in the countryside, in ancient forests and once-landscaped parks.

Trees are the lungs of the countryside, the signifiers of its health, and the essence of trees is wood."

Gustavo Espinosa, 2019.
