Tree have always been important to me. I feel felt at ease when near them and am amazed by their beauty. Throughout history they have been used as important allegorical symbols. In psychotherapy trees are used to represent the self and other significant people in one’s life. The intention with this series is to create images of trees that have a personal symbolic meaning to me but also allows their symbolism be open to the interpretation of the viewer. The painting style mixes post-impressionism with repeating abstract patterns.
