‘Bronze Oak Grove’ is the new installation by artists Rob and Nick Carter in the gardens of Dulwich Picture Gallery.
It is a circle of nine highly realistic bronze renderings of a tree stump originally drawn by Dutch 17th-century artist Jacob de Gheyn II.
Visitors are invited to touch, sit, play and interact with the installation, which will be on special loan for the next three years.
The installation is part of Rob and Nick Carter’s ongoing ‘Transforming’ series which reinterprets works from old masters, combining 3D scanning and printing with traditional lost wax bronze casting to give a lustrous, tactile and realistic finish.
The work is a very fine celebration of nature. It’s also witty, fun and surprisingly comfortable. So if you’re in the area, go and see it.
