Painting: Oil, Spray Paint, Gesso on Canvas.
This piece is a fusion of several inspirations: the Japanese concept of ikebana, the ferns that thrive here in the Pacific Northwest, the monsteras that (for me) recall Henri Matisse, & a touch of Alexander Calder (the wire & metal shape). I'm interested in the center of the vase, the hole that is simple but surreal (in reality the plants would behave differently if the vase was actually shaped this way). This echoes the behavior of the wire (which also speaks to the stems) running through the hole of the copper shape. There is no clear narrative or purpose - just an exploration of materiality, visual cues, and a translation of my surroundings and inspirations.
