Double Exposure: continued

There are these oddly pruned trees in London, near the Tate Britian. What a crazy collection of shapes!

They seem to have a life of there own, these tall (40+ feet) spindily individuals.

I had just exited the 'Nightmares' exhibition, which seemed like a let down. It is hard to think how you could make gothic imagery of the Fuselli and Blake seem boring, but somehow it was accomplished. Having said that, I found the political cartoons of the late 1700's to be fascinating and ended up doing a series of studies based on hair styles in erotic drawings.
