Frequently in Aiden’s artwork he attempts to capture the essence of an environment.

The collection of jewellery he has produced for Heart Galley for this exhibition inspired by fairytales and folklore has been particularly enjoyable for him as it draws inspiration from the fairytale atmosphere experienced in the woods.

Whilst developing these pieces Aiden frequently returned to a large wooded area that he calls spinning woods, not far from where he lives, taking along with him various construction materials and a sketchbook. He can sit for long periods laying out items he has found on the woodland floor, occasionally getting spooked by the whispering of the trees around him or by movements in the corner of his eye.

Aiden finds woods and forests to be a truly beautiful and somehow magical place with an almost intimidating presence.

Using the materials he has gathered, along with some specially sourced stones such as serpentine and green tree stone, Aiden has returned back to his workshop and has tried to convey the fairytale atmosphere within the jewellery pieces he has created.

Heart Gallery is proud to showcase Aiden’s pieces that he has carefully made from sourced materials that really do depict a fairytale atmosphere.
