Without you I cannot breathe series
These prints were inspired by a local campaign which I was involved in, arguing for the development of native tree planting program, in North Ayrshire ( as opposed to proposals for a huge blanket of commercial forestry). As part of the research for these pieces, I investigated the science of photosynthesis. There is a fundamental symbiotic relationship between humans and trees. Trees literally make the air we breathe. They breathe out the oxygen we breathe in and breathe in the carbon dioxide which we breathe out. They also breath in the increasingly toxic levels of industrially produced carbon which we are pouring into the atmosphere, thereby by detoxifying the mess we have made. If we plant enough of them, they can help save us.
