The imagery in Pamela Tait’s work is inspired directly from trees. Through the process of pareidolia — where one finds familiar faces within an abstract pattern, akin to staring at the clouds and seeing a bunny or a tortoise or a sleeping crocodile — by searching within the form and shapes created by each tree, she discovers all of these little (and big) beings. There is a real sense of friendship, of support and love without judgement. Gentle giants . . .
Many of the trees below are dwelling in Glen Affric, and Roots and Rust describes the exposed roots from a wind-blown tree where Pamela lives on the Black Isle.
