I made this piece as a rolling demo during Hampshire Open Studios at Sherborne St John, 25-28 August 2023. It is a drawing of part of a grown-out hedge on a low woodbank, looking out of the wood to a wintery field. Every time that I walk past these trees I am captivated by them, by their gnarled insistence on resuming their interrupted growth upward, and by the wonderful shapes that they made on their journey.
