2017 – Moreton Bay Fig Tree

Moreton Bay Fig Tree was painted by Margherita Sanguineti in December 2017 in the narrow portrait panel adjacent to the barred gate – across from the skate park – and features an expansive Moreton Bay Fig Tree with its complex intertwining branches casting shadows onto the earth below.

Margherita said about her work:

“As a tourist, expat, citizen, Sydneysider and Bondisider I feel the Moreton Bay fig tree expresses one of the main beauties of Sydney and Australia. I want to celebrate Australia’s lush nature: fill the space with a knotty trunk, shadows and sunlight of a majestic Moreton fig tree. I want the audience to feel like they are under the shadow and sunlight coming through the tree’s trunk and branches. We rarely look up from our phone and enjoy the beauty of nature, we are so lucky to have it in Sydney urban areas.”
