Carmen Almon works in copper and brass sheet metal that she manipulates until it begins to achieve an almost organic state. Her leaves arch, dimple, and wither like real leaves ; her flowers incurve and flex as if they are alive.
She prefers plants as they appear in nature, and their particular growth pattern and how they distribute themselves in space to receive light. Almon's Botanicals capture these moments of beauty in a time-honored fashion that will surely obsess future generations of plant lovers.
