To the Temple in the Forest is a series of works on paper in pencil, watercolour and chalk. They record a succession of dream-like images, singular combinations, allusive symbols and fragments of stories.

Studies of elaborate rococo frames and oak-leaf wreaths act as gateways and openings into a sylvan world where strange rituals are enacted. Humans, animals and mythological characters inhabit an Arcadian landscape. This is a realm of half-seen and uncertain imaginings, ambiguous and open to interpretation.

The pictures document various scenes and incidents of a disjointed journey. They are pieces of a map, clues to many possible pathways through a mysterious parallel world.
