We are truly intrigued by these set of grass sculptures by mixed media artist Mathilde Roussel-Giraudy. Made of wheat grass grown on soil molded on recycled metal, there is something oddly engrossing about these forms. Maybe it is the sense of motion they bring to a static scene, maybe it is the surprising looks they induce on onlookers, maybe it is… we don’t know.. see for yourselves.
To quote the artist:
“The natural world, ingested as food becomes a component of human being. Through these anthropomorphic and organic sculptures made of soil and wheat grass seeds, I strive to show that food, it’s origin, it’s transport, has an impact on us beyond it’s taste. The power inside it affects every organ of our body. Observing nature and being aware of what and how we eat makes us more sensitive to food cycles in the world – of abundance, of famine – and allows us to be physically, intellectually and spiritually connected to a global reality.”
