A small child awakes to find blackened leaves falling from her bedroom ceiling, threatening to quietly overwhelm her. Sometimes you wake up with nothing to look forward to ‘ As she wanders around a world that is complex, puzzling and alienating, she is overtaken by a myriad of feelings.
Just as it seems all hope is lost, the girl returns to her bedroom to find that a tiny red seedling has grown to fill the room with warm light. Astonishing Perth artist, Shaun Tan’s latest creation, The Red Tree, is a book about feelings — feelings that can not always be simply expressed in words.
