Each piece pays homage to the tree from which it was formed by highlighting the unique character and grain of its timber. The exhibition highlights the sublime in simple forms, bringing together material, shape and skill to weave a narrative of the importance of the tree to Terry Martin’s practice.

‘My love of trees has always influenced what I have made. Every time I cut a piece of wood, I think about the tree and that’s why I try to leave something of the tree in so many of my pieces,’ said Terry Martin.
Terry Martin’s first exhibition at Bungendore Wood Works Gallery was in September, 1992. Heart of the Tree marks 30 years of exhibiting with the gallery.
Heart of the Tree follows on from his exhibition at Ipswich Art Gallery, Qld earlier this year which is reviewed in the June issue #115 of Wood Review magazine.
