"A Path Trough the Trees II" is a collaboration between artist and printmaker Linda Davies and poet Jill Teague.We have both previously incorporated the concept of Milltir Sgwar into our work.
"Milltir Sgwar/ Square Mile " is a phrase used in Welsh to define your patch of land,the place that created you,a sense of belonging perhaps.Although not our place of birth,our deep connection with the forest,inspired us to focus on this immediate environment.
During the making of a series of books ,the forest we live in had undergone a massive harvesting programme which dramatically altered our close surroundings.With all of the pines cut down the aspect was opened up and light was let in but something impenetrable and mysterious was lost.We had to learn to live with a changed landscape,to reconcile ourselves to lost and altered paths.We set out to record and respond to these changes.
