This etching started with one plate, and it grew organically from plate to plate. The composition developed as it went along; disorderly like the bush itself, strangely beautiful yet tense and uncomfortable.
The depiction of individual trees or tree-trunks that dominate the composition become a metaphor for man. They carry the scars of a life buffered by the elements, yet still they stand as weary yet upright sentinels – a lifetime of memories written upon their bark and twisted forms.
