1,000 Native British Trees
1,000 Native British Trees LPW Exhibition Space 3rd & 4th November 2018
Tristram Aver is using lo-fi, environmentally friendly printmaking techniques (linocut on recycled / recyclable British paper from coffee cups) to produce 1,000 images of his Native British Trees in one day; the same number of trees that a professional planter can plant in a single day.
Prints of Aver’s tree ‘explosions’ will be overlaid to create rows of tree-like silhouettes and canopies, in reference to the destructive impact humans have made on the natural world.
The images will be displayed as an installation over the weekend in advance of National Tree Week (24 Nov – 2 Dec). The work will be for sale (£10 per print) in aid of Autism East Midlands and The Woodland Trust.
Opening Times: Saturday 3rd November, 10am – 5pm & Sunday 4th November, 11am – 3pm.
Exhibition Launch: Join us at 2pm on Saturday 3rd November, when we will be joined by Tristram Aver as well as Autism East Midlands and The Woodland Trust.
Artist Talk: Join us at 2pm on Sunday 4th November, when the artist will give a talk about the work.
The exhibition is part of Julie’s Bicycle’s Season for Change programme.
