Seed Pods – Structures of Growth

Seed Pods – Structures of Growth is a series of small paper sculptures exploring the vital role of regeneration. Each individual piece is moulded from fine layers of hand-printed tissue paper, to form structures reminiscent of Kurrajong pods. 

Seed pods symbolise new growth, the empty bell- shaped pouches, which once enclosed clusters of seeds become recurring motifs of regeneration in my recent work. During the month long installation at The Window Gallery, the composition will twist and grow organically and intuitively to represent the ever-present state of flux in our environment.

Since graduating from the ANU School of Art and Charles Sturt University, I have exhibited regularly in group and solo exhibitions in Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne and Regional NSW. I am passionate about our local art community, and enjoy engaging with students and teachers during Artist Residencies at local schools, building relationships with other local makers at the River and Wren Market, and supporting local artists and organisations through my role as Gallery Officer, Exhibitions and Programs, at the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery.
