Tree

This was an intro practice before the main project A to THE I developed during Stage 3. I explored how texture could work as an extra language in image-making by experimental screenprinting.
The subject Tree chosen was inspired by a trip to Oban during the summer vacation. When I was on the train, sitting beside the window, I was so deeply attracted by the big bunch of wildly-growing trees passing by. The energetic vast green was touching. I want to show their beauty and mystery to make people re-aware of the nature around us.
