“Woodland Arrangement” by Tim Pugh.
“Woodland Arrangement” was created a few years ago in Hawarden Woods in Flintshire. The temporary installation was created on the forest floor and was made from gathered site specific materials such as leaves, berries, pine cones and sycamore seeds. The materials were arranged in lines to convey or imply the suggestion of a natural ‘code’ or language with the visually striking colours and textures, highlighted to good effect against the mud background. I viewed each woodland item like a jigsaw piece, finding the optimum space in which to ‘slot’ it into shape, creating smaller arrangements as I made the installation. The artwork took three hours to make but barely lasted a day succumbing to the effects of breezes and scampering squirrels.
