Looking Up

A visit to York and York Minster. Thinking about the gothic architecture of churches and cathedrals and the relationship to woodland 'architecture'. Up lifting, inspiring, hushed; it feels rather like a grove of trees.

I had a lot more to say, but I'm feeling a little tired. Thanks for the photo John x


  1. Hi Hannah.... You've just reminded me of something I was looking at recently. Your idea about woodland architecture is apparently something which David Hockney was trying to create with his latest large scale tree paintings. He made them enormous because he wants the viewer to be in awe of their presence, to look up into them & feel the majesty of looking up into a real tree ('Bigger Trees near Warter' 2007 was one such work). You may already be familiar with this...

  2. Fabulous image. I love it and your site.

    I have an interview with Artist Robert Anders up on my site that is fascinating. Come follow...

  3. Hello Hannah

    I am trying to contact you regarding a talk for my embroidery group in Barnsley. Sorry but I couldn't find an email address for you so hope you don't mind me doing this as a comment on your blog.
