Platform: Anne Gilchrist – The Oak Year 1.0
Horsecross Arts and Perth Museum and Art Gallery present The Oak Year project by Anne Gilchrist across two venues.
Experience the seasonal changes in the Perthshire woodlands at a glance in this floor installation comprising 20 oil paintings depicting hundreds of individual oak leaves, laid on a carpet of dried oak leaves. Remember to bring your sense of smell!
Enjoy this first comprehensive display of Ann Gilchrist’s The Oak Year project which now spans two adjacent venues: The Sculpture Court and Threshold artspace.
Each leaf’s portrait is my immediate response to colour, form and character. In painting each leaf I left a trace of my observations and experiences, a trail of time passing through growth and change and decay. Anne Gilchrist
