Another couple of trees in suburban Melbourne that we might walk past everyday. But up close, they evolve into a surreal, James Gleeson-esque landscape. This is the landscape that I want to explore. Black bark like cooling lava around a volcano, valleys of bark swirling as if currents in a stream. Subtle shades of green, brown and grey. One could spend hours drawing and mapping the bark and branches that fill our suburban parks and backyards.
