Plates carved on to re-cycled timber for Ghost Trees

In Ghost Trees, Michael has created a forest of unique prints celebrating the trees he’d rather have, and he refers to the exhibition as a ‘meditation on the forest’.

Way tree – you’ll have to visit to find out the story behind it!

When he told me last year about his latest printmaking project – paper made from collected junk mail that had landed in his letter box, plates carved into found timber (furniture discarded by the roadside) and antique frames – he immediately secured a return invitation.

From junk mail to gorgeous print

 

And Ghost Trees is a winner!

There’s a fabulous (and often funny) story to go with each print – and as a great little souvenir, Michael has created a booklet containing photos of the framed prints, plates and the stories.

Don’t miss this symphony in re-cycling – the print-making is so worth seeing and the stories are so worth reading!

Climbing tree – and yes, there’s another story!
