Artist Spent 7 Years in Turning UK Forests into Attractive and Ghostly Works of Art
A multimedia artist spent seven years turning UK Forests into Attractive and Ghostly Works of Art. Ellie Davies has spent seven years turning landscapes throughout the United Kingdom into attractive and ghostly works of art. Into works of Art Ellie Davies by introducing subtle elements to these landscapes, she turns them into meditations on our relationships with the landscapes we grow up and live in.
The artist has weaved something really magical into something even more magical, creating beauty as art, and it is enhancing beauty. He particularly likes the pictures where the forest looks veiled in a curtain of fireflies.
The forest represents the confluence of nature, culture, and human activity,” Davies writes on her website. “Forests are powerful symbols in folklore, fairy tale, and myth, places of enchantment and magic as well as of danger and mystery. The recent history they have come to be associated with psychological states relating to the unconscious.
Against this backdrop, my work explores the ways in which identity is formed by the landscapes we live and grow up in.” The photographs are extremely gorgeous on their own, but each series also has its own intent on the artists’ part, which can be found on her website. We have the deepest respect for Elli’s photography work in forests. She captures an atmosphere that lures you to look harder and deeper and be sure to visit it to see more of her work!
