This sculpture explores tensions between the natural and the manmade with particular reference to the brutal practice of stapling wire fencing directly onto trees, and the ability of those trees to grow around the constraints. The damage goes deep and the scars are visible on the surface. The materials are salvaged from both the landscape and the domestic sphere. Fabrics contrast with found metal, plastic, concrete and stone - the soft with the cold and hard. Layers of materials are contained in stacks of steel gabions and the soft corporeal forms break out from the mesh. A dialogue is established between the pair of forms as they reach towards each other echoing the unspoken communication between trees.
