Paper Plants
Excerpts from A Controlled Wild
Mixed media sculptures (painted paper, wire, plaster, flocking)
2013

Paper Plants examines the tension between nature and artifice made tangible in the cultivation of plants. Created through various paper-building techniques, brightly colored sculptures of fictional plant forms read like three-dimensional botanical illustrations in an everyday landscape. Inspired by the parallels between horticulture and art-making, the paper plants stem from a natural desire to control and beautify that which could be considered wild.
