Trees and Forests

The forest and woodland paintings in this gallery form part of my research into forest civilisations and the folklore of these wild places both in England and Poland.

In folklore and fairy tales the forest is often the starting point for a quest or journey. A place of transformation, secrets and hidden identities. The characters in the tales having to perform tasks or trials, which lead to knowledge and eventually a happy ending. These paintings explore light within the forest and glimpsed horizons from within the darkness.
