‘twist’ explores the powers and limitations of nature

 

Botanical artist Christophe Guinet, better known as Monsieur Plant, presents his latest project ‘TWIST’ which highlights a series of delicately contorted tree trunk sculptures echoing the emotions of nature through their distinct forms. The series introduces five unique installation pieces that ‘come straight out of a fantastic and magical universe’, modeled in unusual configurations to question the transformative powers and limitations of nature.

With ‘TWIST’, Monsieur Plant continues to explore his affinity for the natural environment and his practice of fusing elements of popular culture with the natural world through the creation of curious sculptures. The urban gardener and artist delicately twists and contorts robust pieces of tree trunk, modeling them into five designs recalling everyday symbols and objects. The series includes ‘Tree Knot’, ‘Barbed Wood’, ‘Nature Lover’, ‘Wooden Lace’, and ‘Infinity’ — each connoting the various emotions that can be found in nature. The hyper-realistic works have been molded into distinct shapes to question the powers of nature and its ability to transform and adapt while testing the bounds of its limitations.
