Taking inspiration from the rich stimulus of nature, Arborealis illustrates Stanley Donwood’s fascination with the formation of trees and their dominate power within forests and landscapes. The word Arborealis is a portmanteau of Arboreal, which refers to trees, and Borealis, which comes from Boreas, the god of the north wind. Donwood’s second instalment of his solo exhibition will be an exploration of these majestic flora and will present an incredible body of work dedicated to it.
