Tree Drawings by Tim Knowles
British artist Tim Knowles has created a series to highlight not his artistic abilities but the hidden talent of trees. In “Tree Drawings,” he whimsically sets up a white surface within reach of a tree’s branches and then affixes a writing utensil to the trees. To exhibit the series, he pairs the resulting sketch with a photograph of the set-up that created it.
Knowles’ website states: “A series of drawings produced using drawing implements attached to the tips of tree branches, the wind’s effects on the tree, recorded on paper. Like signatures each drawing reveals the different qualities and characteristics of each tree.”
