Artist Has Spent 7 Years Turning UK Forests Into Works Of Art

Ellie Davies, a talented multimedia artist in the UK, has spent seven years turning landscapes throughout the UK into beautiful and ghostly works of art. By introducing subtle (or sometimes not-so-subtle) elements to these landscapes, she turns them into meditations on our relationships with the landscapes we grow up and live in.

The forest represents the confluence of nature, culture, and human activity,” Davies writes on her website. “Forests are potent symbols in folklore, fairy tale and myth, places of enchantment and magic as well as of danger and mystery.  In more recent history they have come to be associated with psychological states relating to the unconscious. Against this backdrop my work explores the ways in which identity is formed by the landscapes we live and grow up in.”

The images are beautiful on their own, but each series also has its own intent on the artists’ part, which can be found on her website. Be sure to visit it to see more of her work!

Forest are naturally beautiful all on their own. But as long as no animals were bothered & the forest not harmed, meh.

I don't like the plants being altered. These are beautifully constructed photographs, they needn't harm the forest to aesthetically please.
