Protoplasting Nature No.5

Price Upon Request

While creating the pieces Rusak came ultimately close with the leaf, learning it’s curves, veins and folds in order to reshape them and use them again in a re-appropriated manner. An analysis of natural process and direct relation to the sculpture it is yet to become. By mixing the discarded leaves from various sources, the provenance is lost just like the unstable nature of the material itself is loosing its permanency. Tactile experience of working with collated at different stages of life matter, draws directions in forms and provides dimensionality. I work like a surgeon who is exploring the shape of an object by stitching its various pieces. Coated with resin, they become permanent again, porous textures are filled up and joined with a protective layer. The process of decay is further extended as the air access is limited. Objects start to tone down and adjust their visual appearance by changing into pallets of browns and silver
