In the Circle of Life’ series I have wanted to highlight the beauty, that we are connected to all living things, and that we are especially reliant as a species on the magnificent, varied trees in our landscapes. We are in the midst of such a delicate balance of flourishing or diminishing. I have used the circle as a window that looks through often into a light filled sphere.The band of the circle, representative of life and time passing, lead us to a mystical and hopeful place. I have used 24ct gold leaf to symbolise the bright rays of light that illuminate our world, a concept influenced by early Buddhist art The metal leaf provides a reflective colourful surface that changes with light and positioning.
