Beautiful, large scale photographs of Derbyshire tree bark, exploring patterns, textures and surfaces; the essence of trees.

About

MEET THE ARTIST: Gustavo will be on hand to discuss his exhibition on 21 September, 2-4pm. Everyone welcome.

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.

Gus Espinosa, 2019.
