Apple Tree Innocent On Diamond Hill (2003)

The artist’s interest in the dichotomies set up by a Protestant upbringing - guilt and desire; pleasure and the loss of innocence - feature in Apple Tree Innocent On Diamond Hill, 2003. The work is made up of six metres of tree branches suspended in front of a screen; objects of domestic desire hang from the branches and cast a shadow onto the screen which pans across sun-filled sand dunes. Evocative and yet elusive, it draws in the viewer whose shadow falls across the work.
