Post-industrial Abstract

Post-industrial Still Life
Post-industrial Still Life

A few hardy wildflowers still hold shriveled, faded leaves and seeds left from abundant flowers blooming around industrial debris. The debris itself is most interesting, a huge metal spool alternately rusting in various patterns with a few flecks of turquoise paint left for effect. The contrast of the delicate, brittle flowers washed by the sun and the solid, heavy object held in shadow is perhaps the story of how nature will always do her best reclaim what’s been taken from her, pushed aside and buried, renewing  slowly but surely, while manmade things slowly but surely rust, decay and sink into the soil.
