Royal West of England Academy

Arboretum The Art of Trees; the Arborealists and other Artists

Celebrating Bristol's year as European Green Capital, the RWA launches its winter programme on a fittingly 'green' theme, with Arboretum, exploring the rich history of the tree in art. Jemma Appleby's disquieting forest landscape punctuated by the surprising presence of cantilevered rooftops, inspired by the Usonian houses of Frank Lloyd Wright, relies on a sense of illusion to create an imagined place.
