Apple Drawing, Newport House, Herefordshire

This drawing was made over 3 days using c. 12 different varieties of apples grown in the orchard at Newport House, Almeley. The drawing was commissioned for the Out of Nature Sculpture Exhibition held in October 2017. The drawing emerged spontaneously during its making following the trees and the apples. It measured c. 90ft x 50ft. After the exhibition closed the apples provided food for the horses and pigs on the estate. Thanks to Jenny and all the gardeners at Newport House for their continued support and hard work and to Kate Harvey and Keira Brady for their assistance and creative input to the making.
