Artist's Description

About This Painting
Many of nature’s things are too tiny for us with our limited vision to really appreciate. It gave me great pleasure to make this filmy fern stand up and roar on canvas

One of the Hymenophyllum ferns of the NZ bush. Seen with the naked eye, these look just like blades of grass – they are mostly less than 1" in height.. It takes a botanical lens to bring out the wonderfully sculptural shapes of the fern body.

Acrylic on canvas board 12 × 16in. Exhibited in the NZ Academy of Fine Arts Representational 1980. Never offered for sale.
