Entry Title: "Blossfeldt's Apprentice"
Category and Expertise: Fine Art;Nature, Professional
Entry Description: The objects are painstakingly hand made out of twist ties. They attempt to recreate some of the plant structures that were the subject of iconic photographs by the German artist/teacher Karl Blossfeldt in the 1920’s. The limits of working with such a humble material become the prime focus as the arrogance of attempting to imitate nature is shown in the subtle tensions between perfection and imperfection.
