Linda Colnett’s art has long been inspired by nature, and in particular trees. A recurring theme in her work involves the paradox of the many benefits humans derive from trees – oxygen, shelter, food, clothing, medicines, fuel and other materials – versus the devastating impact of deforestation around the world. The process is often an evolution from photographs to paintings, paintings to prints or to mixed media and sculpture. This series is a tribute to the products that are derived from trees, as in wood panels, wooden dowels, and paper.
