Phoenix trees

A new series of oil, charcoal and oil pastel works made during the Coronavirus lockdown in the spring of 2020.

A phoenix tree is one which has fallen, usually blown down in a storm. If the tree still has some roots intact and in contact with the earth, it will continue to grow from its new horizontal position, its existing structures adjusting to support and sustain it.
