Olsen Zander, a Welsh-born artist and photographer, is wrapping white fabric around trees in the UK forest. This is Zander’s trademark and he’s been doing this the better part of a decade. The new series is called ‘Tree, Line’ and it hits the forests of Surrey, Hampshire and Wales. He wraps the trees in white material and wants to construct a relationship between the trees, non-trees and the line of horizon.
‘This is an ongoing series of constructed photographs rooted in the forest. These works, carried out in Surrey, Hampshire and Wales,involve site specific interventions in the landscape, ‘wrapping’ trees with white material to construct a visual relationship between tree, not-tree and the line of horizon according to the camera’s viewpoint.’
