Our new exhibition celebrates the art of trees through paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture this autumn. Created especially for us, ‘Arborealists: the Art of Trees’ draws on a rich tradition of the tree as a vital subject for art.
Trees have proven an important source of artistic inspiration for centuries. From John Constable to David Hockney, artists have employed the largest plant on earth as a metaphor, symbol, decoration and stylistic device.
A new group of contemporary artists called the Arborealists are now adding fresh work to this tradition. Following a highly successful exhibition at the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol, the Arborealists are creating a unique show for Mottisfont, which will include new work exhibited for the first time.
