There the Air is so Lucid...
"There the air is so lucid that eyes can see the red tongues of birds as they sing on the trees upon the fair side of the valley..."
Robin Duttson works across different media in interconnected projects taking inspiration from the rich, all-encompassing schemes of Baroque art. His delicate drawings and prints are part of a wider plan to sculpturally re-create an entire apple tree. Every year, Duttson sets up a temporary orchard studio to draw the short-lived blossoms, in an urgent attempt to capture the details he needs to continue his work through the year. At their simplest level, he hopes to convey something of the optimism and frailty of springtime.
