    Exhibition: Cityscape: Surveying the Urban Biotope

    Plusquamperfekt, 2010

    Electroplated plants, rocks, silica gel, razor wire, aluminum can, illuminated case, electroplated wood, rock salt

    48" x 40" x 40"

    A Plexiglas vitrine set within one of the Park's gardens houses plant specimens that the artist has collected and then electroplated in a thin copper coating. The vitrine is lit from the base of the box through a layer of salt. This installation comes out of a body of work that explores idyllic representations of the landscape and post-industrial realities that surround us.
