The expressionistic depiction of a tree in this painting lends itself to the theme of regeneration. The bold, brightly coloured structures symbolize the vigour with which a living organism can renew itself.
In a broader sense ‘Regeneration’ represents the idea of rebirth, whether that be a deciduous tree growing new leaves or a wound healing; like spring after winter or hope after crisis.
It was painted with a palette knife which means it has quite a textured, raised surface. If you have any questions for me about this painting please click the 'Contact Jacqueline Talbot' button.
