This exhibition started with a seed. From a seed the work evolved and took on a life of its own. Embedded in the theme is a love of nature and gardening.
As a gardener, seeds are familiar and fascinating to artist Kyleigh Simpson. Kyleigh observes natures constant cycle in her garden. The symbolism of seeds is of hope, faith, resilience, reliability, strength, patience and renewal. Each piece of work makes use of collected and found objects including wooden drawers, old furniture, off cuts of timber, plaster, fabric, paper, buttons, seeds, miniature bits and pieces, wire, paint and glue.
Kyleigh has lived on the Blackall Range in Montville for the past 26 years. She is passionate about her garden “The Shambles” and has also enjoyed creating new gardens around the Church.
