One of my favourite art manifestations is the small, low-key “Kunst in ‘t Overbosch” (‘Art in the Overwood”) in Voorhout, the Netherlands.

Each year, during a weekend in August, this little wood is host to 20-30 local artists, working “plein air” on various pieces of arts in an impressive variety of techniques. The wood provides the inspiration for the works, and sometimes itself being the “canvas” for installations and land-art.

In 2017, I was inspired by the approaching autumn to make this art piece. The intriguing shape prompts associations ranging from whale, through shoe and ship to acorn. The colours are a direct reference to the colours of autumn.
