"Enamored" is made with cotton and canvas. The fabric was ripped into strips and hand-dyed. Then, each strip was dipped into a high-end, light-fast archival glue. Each strip was formed into a rose and mounted on canvas. "Enamored" was inspired by passion, love, matters of the heart. The work 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.
