THIS TREE SAYS (1980)

"Trees and Roots" was inspired by a search for my South African roots and the environment of trees and roots which surrounded me in my new home.

This Tree Says  1980
(Detail)

Exploring the internal structure of the tree, the childhood fantasy of creeping inside and being protected and hidden, the "creature concealing" knobbles, bark and tree rings.
