After the Storm

23 November, 2016 (17:52) | Exhibition | By: Jan_Hys

Jane Hyslop has made a series of drawings and artist's books in response to the theme After the Storm and this is displayed in the exhibition of the same title at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RGBE), December 2016 - May 2017.

Her work sits alongside furniture made from wood taken from trees that were destroyed in RBGE during Cyclone Andrea in 2012. In her work she examines the notion of regeneration through research carried out in Gore Glen, Midlothian where several trees came down at the same time. These trees remain and others have since followed and the work offers a snapshot of the flora growing there and recorded during 2016.
