Bramble Arch

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.
