Stephen Turner - The art of the horse-chestnut

Stephen Turner has produced a fascinating blog about his experience as artist in residence at Sturovo in Slovakia (Hungarian / Slovakian border) over the past 6 months.

Conkers painted in watercolour made from the tree itself, from Stephen Turner's blog of his artistic residency in Slovakia.
He has been creating a visual art project about the leaf mining moth and the horse-chestnut in these locations which has involved mapping the location and spread of the disease amongst this species of tree in Sturovo and Esztergom (i.e. both sides of the river Danube) and he has produced a lovely narrative of his discoveries and creations.
