These leafless trees form part of a series of mixed media works on paper from a series I call, “Somerset on Fire”. I have tried to use the colour red in both of its meanings- as a cry of alarm and a colour of passion and love. The idea of fire again can have a dual meaning as fire both cleanses and is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. But of course it can also destroy. Depicted here is a leafless landscape awaiting water and fruitfulness.
