Sculptural bright yellow roses radiate light. Andrea says the piece represents joy, positive energy and happiness. "Its bold color makes you smile!"
To create the piece, Andrea ripped fabric into strips of various sizes. She dipped each strip into a high-end archival glue. Next, she formed each strip into a rose and placed it on a cradled wood panel to create the clustered arrangement.
This artwork is wired to hang both horizontally and vertically. The piece can be easily cleaned with canned air.
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.
