The Gardener

2011
Bronze
140 x 40 x 90 cm
Ed. 6

Following from Der KUSS, this piece further develops sculpture’s integration and unification with nature.The Gardener is even lighter and more transparent than ‘Der Kuss’ yet at the same time is also dynamic and powerful. The woman bends to look at the jasmine which grows along and within her leg, and beyond to the roots where its journey inside begins. The effect of the plant climbing within is a ‘Cul de Paris’, a 19th century skirt.
