Swarm of Desire

Description & Inspiration:

This artwork has been inspired by the poem L’Apres-midi d’un Faune by Stéphane Mallarmé. When researching this artwork I was excited by the way that intertwined branches and roots of trees looked erotic in the half light of woodland undergrowth. My final intention with the work is to have it installed in a forest so that it can be discovered like the faun found the nymphs in the poem . For more info click here
