Parish Stapleton, the artist in residence of Centennial Parklands has created as part of his body of work the project ‘1000 LEAVES’. 1000 solvent drawings created from 1000 original photographs of 1000 individual leaves on 1000 pieces of hand deckled paper Stapleton explores the repetitions of patterns and shapes in nature and the investigation of their origins and commonalities.

“I want to show that everything on the Planet is connected, sharing from the same pool of available resources from which we live and reproduce. The patterns may have become invisible to us, but they are everywhere we look in nature.”

Stapleton seeks to revive our relationship with nature by stimulating our ability to see these patterns and thereby question our relationship to nature.

Each leaf is $40 and available to fall when purchased. The sale of each leaf contributes to the living legacy of the Parklands.
