Tree triptich

Graphite and gold foil on paper, 2024
15cm x 15cm each

This drawing was born from necessity: I received a commission for a tall piece of art that could be transported in hand luggage. Thus, an idea of a triptych and a tree that would span all three individual drawings.

Partly inspired by the delicate quality of Japanese landscape paintings and partly influenced by Art Nouveau's graceful lines and the use of gold ornaments, this is a piece of purely decorative art - not addressing any social issues, not asking any difficult questions, the aim of the triptych is to provide the viewer with simple aesthetic pleasure.
