Materiality: Provisional States

2018

Working from extensive site research, Trace is a study of Hestercombe’s tree stumps as sculptural enamelled elements. The work highlights variety within nature’s forms, absence, successive generations of intervention and design that shaped the gardens at Hestercombe, while referencing a 1997 ‘Dendroarchaeological Survey’ in its archive. A ‘hidden’ but key document in Hestercombe’s restoration.
