About the Artwork:
“I encountered this ancient oak tree at Blenheim Palace one wintery and holiday lit night. I felt like it was a guardian of a gateway between two infinite worlds. I imagined a connected tangle of roots expanding for hundreds of years into the dark depths below my feet. Then I looked up and saw branches reaching to the cosmos. I envisioned the leaves being replaced by glowing orbs. As I inked the page, this image emerged. ” – Rachael Pease
“In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity…”
Hermann Hesse on trees, Wandering
