Q&A

Sunday 5 August, 3–4pm

United by their subject, the Arborealists employ a diverse range of working practices: scale, medium, philosophy, style and technique. The results are, by turn, dramatic, contemplative, expressive, abstracted, hyperreal and surreal. The work demonstrates that trees still have a deep relevance in contemporary art and retain their power to move us all as a vital element in our landscape, lives and well-being.

The Arborealists were founded in 2013 by artist and curator Tim Craven following the seminal exhibition ‘Under the Greenwood: Picturing the British Tree’, staged at St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery, Lymington, in the heart of the New Forest. The Arborealists are a loose association of some sixty professional artists of diverse art practice who share the subject of the tree. There are no rules and no subscription. The group is far flung, with members from across the UK and Europe. The group enjoys a national profile and have already staged nine acclaimed exhibitions in the UK and France, with many more planned for the future, including site-specific projects.

The guest artists include Ashleaf of London, Gary Cook, Jennifer Newbury, Emma Tuck, Clive Walley and Jim Whitty.
