“Autumnal Drum”

by timpughartist

“Autumnal Drum” was created in Hawarden Woods at the tailend of a particularly late Autumn.Contrasting assorted leaves were collected from a different part of the wood and adhered to an old metal drum.I liked the juxtaposition of the warm colours starkly illuminated against a backdrop of conifer trees devoid of colour.The artwork has a somewhat ironic quality as sometimes people comment that my leaf installations resemble wallpaper patterns hence my decision to deliberately create an over the top representation of peoples’ responses.The combination of natural and man made materials reflects my current practise of experimenting with new processes.The oil drum was used to store seed to feed pheasants as the wood is used as a venue for the shooting of game.
