With ‘TWIST’, Monsieur Plant continues to explore his affinity with the natural environment and his practice of fusing elements of popular culture with the natural world through the creation of curious sculptures. The urban gardener and artist subtly twists and turns robust pieces of tree trunk and models them into five designs that recall everyday symbols and objects. The series includes ‘Tree Knot’, ‘Barbed Wood’, ‘Nature Lover’, ‘Wooden Lace’ and ‘Infinity’ – each with the different emotions found in nature. The hyper-realistic works are cast in various forms to question the forces of nature and her ability to transform and adapt, while testing the limits of her limitations.
