Hamadryads

During the spring of 2018, I started wandering through forests and wondered what attracted me to the silence and feeling of the woods. It feels alive with spirit and secret, shifting all the time yet retaining a sense of calm and security. It is an ethereal space where time and history stands still while at the same time captures it.

To translate these senses, I decided to visualise them through the eight “hamadryads”. These were the archetypal wood nymphs of Greek myth, spirits inhabiting the forest and their specific trees.
