Brisées by Helen Sear (signed)


The monochrome, often pixelated images of woodlands in the book are sourced from the internet following a Google image search for the word ‘tree surgeon’. Each image features a placed orb which sometimes covers half of the picture surface. These perfect spheres or distended egg-shapes appear arbitrarily placed but are delicately balanced in stripped ‘tree crowns’ through careful and deliberate positioning by the artist. Many of the images show ropes and ladders trailing inside the orbs as clues to their origin and hinting at the obscured figure.
