SCULPTURE EXHIBITING

Meadowleaf


Meadowleaf illustrates the decline of insects and the threat this has on the plant kingdom’s survival.

The sculpture portrays a swathe of flower cut-outs on 2 layers of a generic leaf form. These mirror and reflect one another as the viewer moves around the work. This repetition demonstrates the way flowers grow en-mass in our countryside but the void of the cutout hints at the danger that plant-life faces through the death of our insects and their decline in numbers. The insect forms usually included in Moilliet’s work are evidently absent.

The overall finish of the sculpture is satin polished but the section with the flowers are included is mirror polished so the viewer is reflected in the work asking them to consider man’s role within this decline.

 PRICE: £12,500
