Event 1: Floral Sculpture – The Amazon Rainforest
I think this is a very interesting issue on a global level in terms of talking about environmental conservation policies. I am totally opposed to indiscriminate felling in the Amazon or any other region of the planet. My personal connection with the Amazon is in the air I breathe every day. I think people will remember the image I want to convey in terms of the Amazon’s potential for recovery in the not-too-distance future, bearing in mind that change is in our hands. This event is a great showcase for exhibiting and disseminating my hopes.
Native flora without a doubt, as well as the plant and non-floral materials which support my work, creating an image and sensation as close to reality as possible. Anthuriums, ivies, orchids, branches, moss, etc.
A completely decorative asymmetric structure with free-flowing lines.
