oneTree 2017
The Tree; For over a hundred years a single Walnut Tree has been witness to the everyday life of residents on St. Charles Street in Victoria’s Rockland neighbourhood. The tree had to come down in 2016 due to safety concerns and will now be transformed by artists into one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Selected pieces will form the oneTree 2017, an exhibit at the Robert Bateman Centre from 16th. November 2017 – 30th. January 2018.

 

See project progress photos below. Theme - "Keep the tree alive". As we all know Gnomes have lived in the base of ancient forest trees for over a thousand years, therefore I am crafting a "Gnome Home Tree Project" by using elements from the Walnut Tree to provide a home for a local gnome family. It's all about "Believing in Magic"

See progress photos below - more to come.
