Ash tree and machine knitted acrylic wool
Castle Crags.Hebden Bridge Arts Festival.
"Emerging from the forest, you see a strange sensual apparition. A woman in a long red column dress appears to be dancing home... after a late night party. But look closer and you realize this is actually a tree in an acrylic wool 'dress'... ." Sophie Horton called this piece "Inappropriately Dressed" because it's not what you would expect to find in a forest. She is interested in the idea of creating inappropriate work."
