Cruelty in full bloom
Polyester resin, fiberglass
"Cruelty in Full Bloom" serves as a commentary on our violent treatment of the natural world. This artwork takes the form of a balloon-like pink flower, its delicate petals evoking a sense of fragile beauty. However, the surface, intentionally left unperfected and rough, corresponds with the theme, mirroring the harshness and imperfections of our interactions with nature.
The vibrant pink hue of the flower is juxtaposed with the striking red paint splatters that cover its surface, symbolizing the metaphorical bloodshed inflicted upon the environment.
The artwork can provide a window to reevaluate our relationship with nature, encouraging empathy and a more sustainable approach to coexist harmoniously with our environment. It serves as a reminder of the consequences of our actions and the importance of nurturing and protecting the delicate beauty of the natural world.
