From a very young age the forest is presented as a place where amazing and scary stories happen. As wild and made up as they are, they still leave an impression, be it a scary one or a happy one. As adults we suppress this, and our connection with the forest fades, however there is still a fear of the forest. When the sun goes down, and the light disappears, the woodland turns into a different place, this is when our imaginations takes over and you can't help but be fearful of the darkness. I aim for my forest / woodland work to be reminiscent of the way we think about the forest in terms of our exposure to mythology and childhood memories.
