Here is the last posting from the exhibition. I was a bit disappointed by the techniques used to display some of the bonsai as there was no backing for a few bonsai and there was a large amount of visual distraction and I really thought that bonsai display in Australia had moved past that point. In the end it did detract form the quality of the exhibition, but I still enjoyed it.
This “broom inspired” style is about nine years old and has been in training as a bonsai since 2009.
This is an “urban” yamadori dug many years ago and was first styled by Walter Pall in 2004.
This is a real yamadori that was collected from the Murrumbidgee river about 30 years ago. It has great style but is difficult to see with the distracting background.
Dug from a garden in about 2003 and has been styled since then.
