We are very excited to be showing Brigitte Watkinson’s ‘The Kinky Life of Trees’ from 16th April to 7th May 2020. Why not join us for the private view on Thursday, 16th April from 18:30 to 21:00.
Brigitte is a Cheshire artist who, nevertheless, was born and raised in the wooded hills and mountains of Bavaria, Germany, and now lives and works near Northwich, Cheshire. Her childhood was filled with wondrous and mysterious stories of anthropomorphic forests and creatures within; stories that have stayed with her to this day. Brigitte’s paintings are a reflection of these tales: she plays these out in her bold and outspoken paintings through unconventional materials, shapes, colours and textures.
The kinky life of trees is a body of work influenced by the writings of Peter Wohlleben and Colin Trudge, who have both written extensively about trees and the communication between them. This, combined with her heritage, manifested itself in the notion that trees not only have feelings, but also feelings for one another. The kinky life of trees has begun.
Brigitte is currently studying for a Master’s degree in Fine Art.
We look forward to seeing you on 16th April for wine, kinky trees and fantastic artwork!
