The tree at the centre of both these drawings resists salt waters and coastal winds, holding fast in The Wash. I found it during a visit to consider human made landscapes and the people who live within them. The drawings are made from memory and designed to be a pair. I am interested in the conversation between the two, and like different angles in a film, this device aims to build narrative by offering multiple points of view.
