GREEN MAN OF THE LANDSCAPE - Drawing

2000

This piece is available for purchase.

The 'Greenman' motif has given full reign to the imagination of artists and craftsmen for centuries, and often with remarkably little hindrance from fact or history. It makes a rich seam for any artist ... there are no rules.

The GREENMAN OF THE LANDSCAPE also follows a tradition of blurred boundaries between man and nature so often seen in Sioban's work. It was initially inspired as a tribute to the first 'Landscape Gardener', Humphry Repton.

Humphry Repton (1752 - 1818) as successor to 'Capability' Brown was renowned for his watercolours to illustrate many of his garden designs. Repton was a very hard working and practical man - but was also well known for his sense of humour!

This drawing was made alongside a maquette to enable decisions with the client. It visualised the 'Green Man' ... and helped establish practical answers for this tree man sculpture.
