An Exhibition entitled "Pods"
I have a deep abiding love of trees and we are living in a time when trees are ever more important. Sometime ago I found the pod of a tree in the middle of an Auckland Central City Park which I could not identify. Eventually someone identified the tree for me, but I was hooked on pods by then. I have since been fascinated with how trees, such might organisms, produce often tiny seeds which they wrap in a variety of intricate pods/cones/wings etc. I set out to draw some simple graphite sketches to show just a few of these.
Below you will find these sketches of both native and exotic trees. Each sketch is very simple, and it only shows the pod/cone etc on a branch no leaves (to remove clues). As each pod/cone etc scrolls by hover over the title to see what I think it might be and there are two sets (scroll down) to look through. Please note any errors are purely the fault of the artist.
If you are interested in purchasing any of these items each framed sketch is $200 nzd. Please email email@example.com.
