Series: Grass Work

A perfect square of lawn, Organic Abstraction conveys the minimalism of a combined art and nature, presenting wet in dry, like an oil painting still fresh. The number 10 is repeated and visible at the edges – a rating and a reference to the geometry that underpins abstraction. The text 'ART', imprinted on the pine frame, marches around the four corners of the canvas – a refrain and a vain attempt to contain the unruly and independent artwork. The grass grows and needs light and water, and then recedes and waits for revival.
