Glamour Wood refers to the archaic meaning of glamour (as in ancient Celtic fairytales), as a cast spell; the wood being the visual metaphor for a wild yet sophisticated and seducing beauty. Glamour Wood is a forested setting that offers opportunities for entertainment and the fulfillment of desire; yet, it is also a place of camouflage and delusion.
This group of paintings is dated 2000-2003.
