‘Acacia seed pods’ at LAPIEZA

The drawings retain many of the aspects of the original objects

During both an artist in residence and exhibition at LAPIEZA I took a walk through Casa de Compo park and saw a lot of seed pods from the many Acacia trees there. I collected a few and drew them at LAPIEZA. 

This gave me an opportunity to develop the way in which I hang my ‘clouds’ of object drawings, which until then consisted of objects arbitrarily arranged. Arranging the drawings of the seed pods in a more naturalistic way, as if they had been blown by the wind, imitates the way I saw them spread across Casa de Compo.
