Return to Mother Nature
2016. Devyn Lopez. 10' x 10'. floral bed sheet, bed sheet dyed with red clay, artificial flowers.
"Return to Mother Nature" explores the delicate balance between man-made nature and natural nature. The top part of the net represents artificial nature that the world manufactures with a floral printed bed sheet and artificial flowers. The bottom is a cotton bed sheet dyed with red clay with real leafs attached. Both sheets were tied and knotted together using a survival knot technique for creating a net to capture food. With the large gaps in the net I hoped to create a sense of tension and pulling to show to struggle of both forces being forced together when they are vastly different.
