The artwork is a sculptural chair titled “Bloom.”
It emulates coral reefs and their growth process. Bloom is composed of several parts coming together; first a metal tubular frame which acts as the structure of the chair mimicking the hard
surfaces onto which coral larvae are attached and grow on. Furthermore, the second component is the paraffin wax/polyurethane foam which is dripped off of the metal frame enveloping it completely. The drip method allows for the organic shapes to formulate in a controlled yet unexpected manner, resembling that of the growth formation of the coral reefs on the submerged hard surfaces. Finally, a layer of clear resin is dripped off of the metal frame envelope creating a translucent protective coat.
