These collaborative beautiful large scale tree prints are a tribute to the library of information each one of these trees hold.
The Dendrochronology not only tells us the age of the tree but the “Passage of time” each tree has lived. With each tree growing one ring annually these rings show a story of drought, fire, disease, insect plagues, wildlife and excessive rain. Long after these trees have fallen they continue to change shape, swelling, splitting and contracting with exposure to Rain and Sun.
We source these cross sections from fallen trees and besides the environmental story, each tree has a human story to tell. And marriage held under the shade of a once magnificent Gum, the inspiration of a charcoal drawing of a Cypress Pine by Hans Heysen or a tree planted for a loved one passed too soon. Each tree section is brought back to our Adelaide Hills Studio and prepared for inking. Once ready the canvas is laid directly on to the timber, hand pressed and bought back to life once again. Only 10 prints are taken from each tree and every print will be unique as the tree continues to change long after it has fallen.
Sourced this amazing old Pepper tree from Angaston, SA. It stood proudly outside the Angaston Police Station.In 1839 the Surveyor General of South Australia sold 28,000 acres at the present site of Angaston for £1 an acre to George Fife Angas. The town took its name from this hugely influential landowner. George Fife Angas deplored drunken and unruly behaviour. He wrote in 1851: ‘There were persons prowling amongst sheep stations and shepherds’ huts in the neighbourhood, who did untold injury in making the shepherds drunk with spirits slyly introduced, but no one had authority to apprehend them’. Angas lobbied the Government for the area’s first police station. He then donated the land and building materials. The complex eventually included stables, courtroom, magistrate’s room, and cells for wrongdoers. The building has nine inch Baltic pine and slab slate floors. The Old Police Station is now a private residence. (taken from http://angaston.org.au/historic-buildings-of-angaston/)
