Time around trees
Tansy Lee Moir, Eoin Cox, Catherine Lilley
For her latest exhibition Tansy Lee Moir is joined by artists Eoin Cox and Catherine Lilley, who share her passion for woodlands. The show will feature drawings, paintings, carvings and prints which examine woodland at different scales, from the powerful presence of a veteran tree, to the intimate surfaces of trees and the plants and organisms which inhabit them. All the works are made as a direct response to an aspect of woodland; the dynamic curve of a twisted trunk, the texture and structure of a sheet of bark, the delicate detail in a damp tangle of lichen. Together, they invite us to look with fresh eyes at the trees and woodlands around us.
