Sowing Seeds For The Future
A plant that has thick seedpods that crack open and twist and fling the seeds far and wide.
The loop at the bottom is the plant, the white parts are open seedpods.
Ishmael is one of our top young artists. His work is wonderfully abstract and uses a clever combination of angles and curves, shiny smooth surfaces contrasting against matt white.
We have promoted Ishmael since he was a teenager when we spotted talent in even his earliest work. Ishmael was one of two runners-up in the sculpture category of the prestigious National Arts Merit Awards (NAMA) competition in 2008.
