Flower Blob Series

Flower blob #83
cast foam and plastic, flocking, tree trunk, plaster
65 x 22 x 12 inches

The Flower Blob sculptures take their cue from blob architecture. Their forms are in fact nothing in nature, though the sculptures reveal themselves as natural forms.

The Flower Blobs continue to explore the spills of my landscape projects, the space where the artificial meets the real. In these intimately scaled sculptures the dialogue between the real and the artificial extends to the surfaces covered with plastic flowers and novelty birds. The Flower Blob sculptures continue my interest in examining our control and manipulation of nature.
