Silva: a meditation on trees and woods in eleven photographs
Humankind has had an intimate relationship with trees and woodland since the days of our earliest ancestors – on the one hand, practical and prosaic, on another, a deeply-felt sense of their intrinsic value as living things, expressed spiritually by some. Fundamentally important in sustainable, richly-biodiverse and resilient future environments, trees and woodland are just as important to us psychologically and physically. This exhibition of black and white photographic prints by photographer Chris Thomas seeks to invite visitors simply to reflect upon the ‘being’ of trees and woods: their ‘essence’ expressed in their architectures, textures and forms, the way they create light and shade and space, how these phenomena change daily, or through the seasons – and how we respond ourselves, consciously or subliminally, to our trees and woodlands.
