Best in Show

 

The Best in Show was awarded to Andrew Carr for his Eucalyptus megacornuta – warty yate triptych.

This work is a triptych comprising three individual artworks. The first artwork details the developing buds, the second showcases the open flowers and the third highlights the resulting gumnuts. Together, the works appear as branches of the same tree at different stages of development. The triptych is part of a longer term project by the artist to draw all the eucalypts in the Hadrotes group in this format.
