Art imitating life, or life imitating art?
Part of the fun of being an artist is that you get to create anything you want.
You take inspiration from many places, including daily life.
I have always been drawn to geometric shapes and am forever looking for patterns in my concepts.
If I see something with a repetitious pattern, I can’t help myself – I just have to take on the challenge of making it.
I was initially drawn to the agave plant for its sharp points and symmetrical design.
Used frequently in modern landscaping and garden design, I wondered what it would be like to create a steel version of this fashionable succulent plant.
By placing my agave sculpture among real agave plants, I hoped to inspire the viewer to consider and question the concepts of life, art, real and unreal.
This type of garden art looks marvellous against springtime blooms or will create a fun, tropical atmosphere for sultry summers spent in the backyard.
