From the artist

The old trees, Conara portrays the iconic line of Cypress trees that are visible from the Midland Highway. I have been passing by these trees for over fifty years, and in that time they have changed little, proof of their very old age. Although the road and farming landscape around the trees continues to change and evolve, they survive, alongside the threatening gorse, through rain and drought.
