Among The Trees
Time Out says
Consider the tree. Stately dependable oak, spindly flamboyant acer, rampantly multiplying sycamore, even the oft-overlooked London plane: trees are just damn beautiful. Dedicate even more time to musing on their exceptional qualities with this group exhibition at the Hayward. Spanning painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and video installation, the show looks at how leaves, twigs, branches and canopies have been inspiring artsy types since they first sprouted happily from the earth, right up to the contemporary artists practicing today. Artists include Robert Adams, Aija-Liisa Ahtila, Tacita Dean, Peter Doig, Anya Gallaccio, Giuseppe Penone, Robert Smithson and Pascale Marthine Tayou.
