The philosopher George Berkeley once asked the famous question, “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?”
It might not be heard, but it must be felt – felt, as a natural shift in the world of the flora and fauna surrounding it, living in it, inhabiting the area around it. This gorgeous little original oil on board by Mark Eldred, allows you, the viewer, a beautiful insight into that very scenario. The fallen Birch tree lies quietly amongst the natural world around it; at this stage, perhaps, now becoming a part of the ground itself. With the wild garlic and the bluebells, slowly creeping over the trunk and claiming it as their own. No one can recreate nature in the way Eldred does. He is a master at his craft.
Although sold separately – this painting was created as part of a pair – Fallen Birch, Wild Garlic and Bluebells II can be seen HERE.
Irish contemporary art – Oils on board – stunning framing – smaller than usual piece.
Your Shipping Choices Explained
NOTE: Due to Covid 19 areas are experiencing delays and some restrictions on deliveries – please enquire directly with us if you are concerned.
We generally use the postal service here in Ireland, called An Post. It is very reliable and we take the utmost care in packing all our pieces professionally to ensure that have the very best chance of arriving safely in their destination. This option would be at your own risk.
We can also offer you our own cargo insurance at a reasonable price – weight and piece dependent. Please enquire with us for this option. (This will also be packed by us and carried by An Post as above)
Taking into account the delicate nature and cost of your purchase, if you would prefer it travel in a specialized and insured Art Box with an outside Art Handler, then this can be arranged. For paintings up to and including the size 120cm x 100 cm – prices with an insured professional courier, range from €75 – all the way up to €475 (size and location dependent) NOTE: This option will take considerably longer as we will have to outsource it and get quotes for you before we proceed.
For paintings or items falling outside of those largest dimensions then a further discussion is required – as it may need to have a bespoke crate to be built for it and a further cost will apply.
