Sculptor and installation artist, Jessica Pezalla, created this delightful art piece entitled: “River” using rocks and cut out pieces of felt and carpet.
I love how the whole piece is made with organic and mundane human-made objects. She even created a circular section off to the left, like a little earthen sanctuary hidden just around the corner from the river’s edge. I really appreciate her creativity and imagination. Using ringlets to represent ripples on the river’s surface…brilliant!
From her artist statement on her website she states
As humans build cities and industries that cover and consume the land, I take the scraps discarded by this process and use them for my own purposes. My sculptures and installations create a metaphoric connection between the natural world and the manmade. This connection offers the viewer a new way of understanding the mysterious topographies both near and far, real and imagined.
Her piece inspires me to make a mixed media piece using organic and inorganic objects. What objects are you inspired to use for your “in/organic” piece?
