Darwin’s Tree

This is a farewell to my homage to Darwin, a piece I did last year without realising consciously that the 200th anniversary of his birth was about to be celebrated.

Darwin's Tree ('I Think') (sold)

I’ve long found Darwin a most interesting and sympathetic figure, but having to translate a learned address into French for my anthropologist brother rekindled my curiosity and I started collecting ideas, images and thoughts. It’s that strange (often long) process which eventually leads to a finished art piece.

This piece has gone to a friend and fellow-artist, but I’m not finished with Darwin yet…so much more to explore.
