girls against gold 2009, jasmine matus

moon flowers, brooches, 925 silver, recycled cream bulb canister, base metal, 2009
Taxidermy of a Modern Road Kill and Moon Flowers hint a subtle reminder that life on earth is precious and impermanent; our natural resources are being readily depleted and most are unable to be replenished. The scrap metal used has been collected by the side of busy road intersections. These scraps of metals have revealed to me some interesting characteristics; the scratches from other vehicles driving them into the road, odd shapes, they tell a story.
By combining the scrap with precious metals I am giving a new life to otherwise useless trash waiting to be swept up and lost into the abyss.
