Part of a group of younger Acers in Kew Gardens this Acer 'Bloodwood' has rich deep red or purple leaves - Rothko Red - to my mind. The shades vary from pink to almost black in late September and match the mood of changing light and shortening days. The fibrous and strong Heritage Handmade Hosokawa Kozo paper holds light and gives this piece dimension and a sensation of starry leaves in the wind.
