Having studied sculpture and furniture design, George Kitching now combines an artistic background with his commercial work as a tree surgeon.
His latest series, Death of a Species, examines the spread of disease in trees via transportation and importation. Kitching repurposes the diseased wood, transforming its aesthetic through saws, chisels, sanding tools and oil.
Death of a Species Part 2: Lamb’s Leg, 2018. Elm, beeswax with steel bracket wall hanging.
