Emblem 96

Information and materials

This b+w photo is an early test print for the photographic piece ‘Concrete Autumn (Phantom Tree)’ 2005.
It shows a ghostly image of a concrete tree made as 1 of 4 trees for a garden by Robert Mallet Stevens in 1925.  The concrete trees were made by the sculptors Jan and Joel Martel.
The photo piece was the first work that introduced the tree into my practice.  Since 2005 almost every work has made reference to the component shapes and forms of the original concrete tree.
