Moved by a series of incidents surrounding a well-nigh 100 year old oak tree in the artist`s garden, Sampson explores the cycle of life - growth, maturity, decay, and most significantly, renewal and rejuvenation occurring in nature, strongly symbolizing the sacredness and divineness of the universe.
Works are presented as oil paintings, and prints - incorporating a variety of techniques including monotypes, collagraphs, carborundum, photopolymer and linocuts. The artworks range from impressonistic to the abstract. Some prints have been created using arboreal components, adding further depth to the central concept of renewal and rejuvenation.
Exhibition runs from 12 July - 31 July 2017 - online until 31 August 2017
