Sentinel Trees

Welcome to Sentinel Trees, an exhibition of miniature art works from 13 artists and 9 authors. 
We are excited and pleased to be part of the Urban Tree Festival 2020.https://urbantreefestival.org/

Artist: Srinivas Surti Writer: Dean Reddick


Stalking in town parks inlaid with trees
or tiptoeing down weedy alleys
and visiting tatty market streets

I am the Gatherer

of peeling veneer from grandma's house
and warped ply from dad's shed
cobbled together marquetry, chipped board
and tea-ringed table tops
discarded lives of a thousand trees

About the Artist

Srinivas Surti was born in Hyderabad, India in 1970 and settled in the UK in 1978. He completed an MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in 2002, where he was a recipient of the Rootstein Hopkins Postgraduate Award in 2001. He is currently a practice-based Phd student at Chelsea College of Art; his research focuses on surface relief as a form of rupture between the mediated image and the physical object to frame ideas of alterity through the use of the insignia. He has also been involved in teaching part-time since 2005, previously as Lecturer on the BA and MA Fine Art courses at UCA Farnham and currently on the BA Fine Art and Graphic Design courses at University of Suffolk. His studio is at Old Jet a multidisciplinary arts centre located at the former RAF / US Airforce base in Rendlesham, Suffolk.
