Jared Nicholson: Bonsai



Jared Nicholson is currently exhibiting his extensive Bonsai Tree collection in the Small Dog Gallery here at the Depot Artspace.

“There are no borders in bonsai. The dove of peace flies to palace as to humble house, to young as to old, to rich and poor. So does the spirit of bonsai.”
― John Yoshio Naka

Jared Nicholson developed an interest in the art of bonsai at a young age and started growing trees when he was just 13 years old. He has spent time in Japan visiting some of the world’s most famous bonsai gardens. Jared enjoys the challenge of shaping, manipulating and nurturing the tree form in an attempt to mirror the natural environment. This exhibition features some of the finest examples from his collection of over 120 trees.

His exhibition runs until the 17th of October so don’t miss it!
