walking tree Series 2011

 

The sands of the dunes are in a constant state of flux.

The trees that grow in the dunes have adapted by developing thick woody roots.

They are impassive to the shifting pavane of wind, rain and time.

The roots have become exposed imbuing a subtle realization of motion.

The trees appear to be about to lift themselves free and amble forth.

This series has manages to create a moment when the Dryads awake.

 

In Greek mythology, the Dryads are female spirits of nature, who preside over groves and forests.

Each one is born with a certain tree over which she watches.

The lives of the Dryads are connected with that of the trees; should the tree perish, then she dies with it.

If a mortal causes this, the gods will punish him for that deed.

The Dryads themselves will also punish any thoughtless mortal who would somehow injure the trees.
