As strange as this may sound, I have a thing for trees. Especially during the winter months. After their leaves have dropped off, their branches twist out in all possible directions. The sense of what one would assume to be a complete lack of control is unsettling. As they reach out to you a wave of emotion hits; ranging from fear to some form of natural exhilaration.

Whilst I recover the gift of expressing myself emotionally, I’ll let the trees take over…

“Colour is uncontainable. It effortlessly reveals the limits of language and evades our best attempts to impose a rational order on it… To work with colour is to become acutely aware of the insufficiency of language and theory – which is both disturbing and pleasurable.” –  David Batchelor
