The 'Bramble Arch' drawings are informed by old English
folklore relating to the healing properties of the arch as an
architectural form in nature. Infirm or afflicted children, even
horses were passed under the long arching stems of the wild
bramble. Inspired by such tales, I have become interested in
the ways in which landscape and nature can be the object of
projected beliefs and spiritual ideas.
