“Concrete Bonsai,” mixed media, pomegranate, soil, ferrocement and concrete, concrete base size: 34 x 17 x 8.5cm, bonsai size excl. concrete base: 30 x 40 x 30cm, 2013

In terms of bonsais I prefer the “landscapes” without “flowerpots.” The urban landscapes we see around us have no pot. Our desire for nature involves the redefinition and human sculpting of nature. The trees planted along the sidewalk and the overhanging baskets of plants on the elevated roads are the source of inspiration for this work. “Concrete Bonsai ” challenges this cycle of bondage and liberation.
