Platanus x hispanica

About

Both works are investigations into the diverse textual qualities of the layers of self-cleansing bark from the unique species that line London’s streets.

Trunk 1 (1.5×4 meters) is a composite drawing of the London plane tree trunk and is made up of a collection of rubbings and hand drawings from over 300 London plane trees.

Trunk 2 (1.5×3 meters) is a result of a participatory drawing workshop I ran and is 18 individuals’ interpretations of the bark of the plane tree
