No, that is not tree paint. It is a white cloth material used by artist Zander Olsen as a “wrapping” to create positive and negative space between trees and the horizon. The heavy contrast results in an engaging relationship between the foreground of trees and the topography in which they stand.
“This is an ongoing series of constructed photographs rooted in the forest. These works, carried out in Surrey, Hampshire and Wales,involve site specific interventions in the landscape, ‘wrapping’ trees with white material to construct a visual relationship between tree, not-tree and the line of horizon according to the camera’s viewpoint.”
