UNIONgallery in Edinburgh is showing an exhibition of new work by wood sculptor Michael McManus. Famous for his engaging and playful sculptural creations,  Michael is also showing his tree paintings in oils – a recent development, and a fitting one given his respect for the dignity of the material, his admiration of trees’ majesty, and his discovery of how alike the palette knife is to the chisel. Michael says ‘I like to think am carving with the paint – and so I paint trees…’
