The Sheoak Dance - Allocasuarina verticillata

Graphite on paper
113 cm H x 83 cm W


Graphite on 640gsm cold pressed Arches paper. The sheoak’s humble, drooping appearance mutes into the seaside landscape. Observe a little closer to see the sheoak’s branchlets curve, sweep and flick in rhythm of the ocean breeze. Their seeds escape the cones to wander and weave through foliage to the sandy, dry, rocky earth below. Welcome to ‘The Sheoak Dance’ of the Allocasuarina verticillata, Drooping Sheoak.
