New Zealand Sculpture Onshore 2006

 

Forget me Knot installation

This work is inspired by the fantastic landscapes of Dr Seuss and indirectly by The Day of the Triffids a 50s sci-fi novel by John Wyndham. The Day of the Triffids is a great story – mankind is all but destroyed as the Earth has been overrun by genetically engineered plants, specifically created to be farmed for bio oil… I consider my creations to be bizarre hybrids, sprouting unexpectedly, sporting unnatural, almost radioactive colours in imitation of the organic forms present in the natural world.
