"Blue Topaz" was inspired by the gemstone and blue roses. To create the piece, I ripped fabric into strips of various sizes. I dipped each strip into a high-end archival glue. Next, I formed each strip into a rose and placed it on canvas to create the clustered arrangement. The work can be easily cleaned with canned air.

Blue Topaz, the gemstone, and blue roses share a commonality. They both have a mystical and magical quality. The also have a peaceful and calming effect on emotions.

Andrea Cook

Phoenix, Arizona

Andrea Cook is a sculptor based in Phoenix, Arizona who creates wall sculptures that resemble tightly bundled roses and are inspired by the elegance and loveliness of the flower. She creates each rose from hand dyed, painted, or pure fabrics made from canvas, burlap, muslin, and cotton blends. To create her work, she rips the fabric into ribbons and dips them in a high-quality, light-fast archival glue. She then sculpts each strip into a rose form and mounts them on a gallery wrapped canvas or deep cradled birch panel. The sculptures are remarkably tactile; “everyone wants to touch the pieces,” says Andrea. And, while they appear to be soft, the roses are hard and durable.
