A sparring partner for the square Prick 2007, the round Bush presents the impenetrable and the problematic within an appealing seductive form.  Viewed front-on the field of silver appears soft and hair-like, tempting touch while being protected within the rim of the work.  In profile, the rigid steel with sharp points are exposed and appear aggressive.  A dense native forest and a reference to female sex organs, Bush blends landscape and identity.
