Bonsai: Generations of Growth

This exhibition shares the work of 2 generations of Sydney-based bonsai practitioners, Megumi and Alex Bennett. They express the Japanese tradition of bonsai in Australian native plants such as fig trees. Tracing the legacy of bonsai knowledge in their lineage, the bonsai reflects the artists’ Japanese backgrounds embracing Australian identity.

Cultivating miniaturised trees across a range of species, Megumi and Alex Bennett’s collection of bonsai show a range of techniques uniquely in tune with their Australian environment.

Featured in this exhibition are several Port Jackson Fig bonsais, known and loved trees on the streets of Sydney. The trees are nurtured into a miniaturised scale while maintaining a rich sense of character.

Join us for the opening and bonsai demonstration on Tuesday 2 May at 6.30pm. Admission is free. No bookings required.
