A Flower It Seems, as If a Tree It Look Like.

A Flower It Seems, A Tree It Resembles

The inspiration for this piece was derived from the local trails lined with Melaleuca trees (also known as paperbark trees). These handcrafted trees, leaves, and flowers “planted” in the middle of the pond absorb the natural energy of the land and water, stretching upwards in a display of infinite vitality. The flowers, made up of densely gathered Melaleuca leaves, may seem like flowers but are only an imitation of such, because these leaves are formed out of sheets of stainless steel which reflect the real sky. A Flower It Seems embodies a deep reflection on culture, on how human beings have longed for the beauty of a “second nature,” or nature modified by humans.
