Ritchie Ares Doña
Artwork: Tree of Knowledge
Ritchie Ares Doña’s is a North West artist whose work has been included in major festival and exhibitions. He takes the ordinary or mundane objects and turns them into extraordinary sculptures.
In this case it is the Tree of Knowledge. Positioned against the backdrop of the Tasmanian bush in the foyer of the Gallery, this beautiful, delicate and blossoming tree sits perfectly. It’s moss covered trunk and branches holding the weight of large flowers made from expertly shaped and folded books. It’s a wonderfully alluring sculpture that is loved by all visitors.
