cork oak camping


Camping in the cork oak plantation recently – I do always find this place rather special, and it was great to be there in the evening and early morning.  I did some drawings, and also a scroll of ink rubbings from the many cut stumps where trees have been cut out for some reason.  Rubbings are a major part of my work at the moment – particularly of tree stumps and stems.  I like the directness of a rubbing – gives a direct recording of the actual shape, size and texture of the object, but also turns it into an ‘image’.

    Enjoyed visiting your site…made all the more interesting to me since Australia seems so far away. I liked what you said about camping in an earlier post…how it becomes a ritualized space…I couldn’t agree more.
    I appreciate where your imagery comes from and that you keep it open. I work in nature as well and usually on site. If you are interested here is the link to my blog:
