‘Tree Of Life’ is one of her largest exhibitions in Europe and has been curated by Jacquiline Creswell.

The exhibition takes its name from one of the most important and enduring themes occupying Blumenfeld’s work.

It captures all the symbolism of the imagery and describes a narrative of renewal, energy, optimism and hope.
