"In the forest series, the viewer is presented with a reworking of the natural order in an almost unnerving manner. Leaves appear less as foliage, more as feathers. The trunks seem less constructed of bark, more of contorted bone. The effect within these few works is to reimagine the woodland not as a space of pastoral and romantic contemplation, but as a place where pagan rites, where mischief and folklore with their darker side can reign. That the trees are alone in their world creates a sense of unease and unsettling quietude."
