‘Disappearing Woodland’ is a loose-leaf bound book that focuses on the recent disappearance of ancient woodland in the UK. As the viewer moves through the book, elements of the woodland imagery begin to disappear, leaving behind only the imprint of the trees that were once there.
It was exhibted and consequently sold in the ‘Nature Works’ Exhibition at the Upright Gallery in Edinburgh in December 2021. Following hard on the heels of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow in November 2021, Upright Gallery invited artist book makers to submit work on the theme of climate change. Artists approached the brief in a wide variety of ways but always with a climate change message contained within their artwork. Nature Works featured a broad selection of artist books by over 30 makers spread across three continents.
