I came across this ancient hazel in the grounds of a local castle (Lumley Castle, County Durham). I love the way in which the lower parts of the boughs & branches spread low across the ground, with the changing hues of the autumn leaves above.
I’ve developed the artwork by bringing together a series of photographs of the scene, taking them at different angles, distances, height, etc. The photographs are then manipulated and aligned to focus attention on the main subject, but also tell the story of its environment and circumstances, working them as a form of art, rather than a straight-forward photograph, making a great artwork in its own right.
The artwork is strictly limited to a run of 25, assuring you of rare wall-art wherever it is displayed. It is numbered and signed by the photographer and is accompanied by an embossed, signed letter of authenticity, with the limited-edition sequence number of the piece, along with a copy of the artwork.
