About the artwork
See also the two other paintings that can be displayed with this one as a triptych – Silent Woods to the Right, and Silent Woods in the Middle.
The global climate crisis, including the recent terrible destruction of The Amazon Rain Forest, has created space in which to think more about the preciousness of woodlands and trees, and the title and Dvorak’s haunting music became, for me, a eulogy. I have started growing tree saplings in pots. My work has moved more strongly towards the representational, albeit very abstracted.
