The fidget Tree. (artwork)
Pen and rotring ink on paper.
40cm x 60cm
first in the series Treelife 4.
Fidget is based on the Ulmus minor (field Elm) family Ulmaceae.
the Tree of Dreams. The Oneiroi, spirits of dreams, roosted on the branches an elm tree near the entrance of Haides.
All over Europe the fine Elm is associated with will power and standing guard at burial grounds to keep what is in, in and what is out, out.
While I was working on Fidget, the Charlie Hebdo shootings took place in Paris, (7/1/2016)
I refer to this in the drawing.
