About Benjamin Rice

About the artwork

Wild Cherry

This tree is shapely and beautiful, but not in the manner of a catwalk model. Look closely and the blemishes become apparent: the smooth trunk defaced by burls, the irregularity where the boughs emerge, the lower branches snapped off by generations of children swinging from it.

It has personality and defiance. It stands proudly alone, unlike the huddled trees behind. In spring it entices with pink-white blossom. In summer it drapes itself in shades of green, maturing as the languid days of August and September near. And then, in autumn, comes the grand finale - the cloaks of blazing reds, golds and burnt oranges, one succeeding the other in rapid succession as if it is seeking to fend off the gathering melancholy of winter.

It is during those monochromatic days when it’s shed its leaves and there are few passers-by pausing to admire, that I find it most alluring. The outer form, the pleasing symmetry, remains, but now we see the complexity that it conceals. We see the thousands of riotous, tangled branches, the recalcitrant disorder within the apparent order; all those small inner tumults which behind our calm facades afflict us all.

Prints at other sizes available.
