Heartwood – Pining For You

Cy Forrest Author

Heartwood – Pining For You is by Mike Fletcher at Brownsea Island, inspired by a heart carved into a tree on the island in 1985, with the names ‘Pat + Caroline’.

“Mike Fletcher is a Devon based landscape sculptor who worked with the teenagers to come up with a deceptively simple approach of painting red hearts across several trees – arranged so the painted lines only appear as a heart from one location. The work, called ‘Heartwood- Pining for You’, consists of five separate hearts painted on trees.”

I photographed three of them.

The heart painted on trees viewed side on. A ‘heart’ painted on trees, and viewed side-on.

The 'heart' viewed from the front. The ‘heart’ viewed from the front.

Three Line 'Tree Heart' - The parts really are painted on five trees about 10m apart. Three Line ‘Tree Heart’ – This really is painted on five trees about 10m apart.

My favourite. Parts of the heart are even painted on bits of debris over 15m apart. My favourite. Parts of the heart are even painted on bits of debris over 15m apart.
