To conclude this April and the theme of ‘Bloom’ is ￼￼￼a brilliantly blooming exhibition entitled ‘A Conversation with Trees’ by Daniel Blignaut. Rather than employing a representational depiction, the artist uses something almost like an iconographic template to portray trees as a metaphor of the human condition exploring its presence, complexity and majesty over the course of time, environment and climate. What results is a delightful picture that looks closely at the physicality of trees in a dreamy, nostalgic and fascinating way that arouses a burning desire for paradise.
Daniel Blignaut’s ‘A Conversation with Trees’ opens now till Thursday, 6 June 2013 at Bill Lowe Gallery, 1555 Peachtree Street. Suite 100. Atlanta, GA 30309.
