This series began with a series of photographs of Beech trees taken in Co Wicklow, Ireland. The artist made a series of paintings some of which he cut up into small rectangles. He rearranged these parts to create new works enhancing the movement of the branches. The titles come from Bach’s Cello Suites. The painting below was exhibited in the RHA Annual Exhibition in 2014 and was awarded The De Veres Art Award for a work of distinction that year.
