‘Sunflowers’ is a window display by Bristol-based artist Paul Green. The artist employed mathematical patterns and synthetic materials to create this series of sculptures inspired by disappearing nature.
More comfortable with a drill and screwdriver than a brush or chisel, PG drilled thousands of holes into multiple sheets of recycled acrylic to create the fractal forms of sunflowers. The thick sheets of acrylic in the central sunflower were once part of the set of a well-known game show filmed in Bristol. Light catches on the empty holes to constantly change the colour of the flowers.
Through the combination of mathematical principles, synthetic materials, negative space, and light, PG constructs floating visions of nature’s absence.
