Jason Stillman is one of those sculptors who take sculpting to a new level. While many of his works are already on display at many places, he has designed an amazing Kinetic Steel Sculpture titled “The Evolution of Flora”. It is right now installed at Performance Arts Center in downtown Colorado Springs and would be available for purchase for $17,000. This large steel fabricated sculpture stands 10-11 feet tall and measures 5-6 feet in width.
It comes with multiple moving parts and the flowers and the leaves flutter in breeze. Using a stain lacquer called Permalac, it can be used as an indoor or an outdoor sculpture. Just two coatings of this amazing lacquer are enough to withstand even extreme weather conditions for about 10 years. The Evolution of Flora allows the viewer and art enthusiast to appreciate the evolution of plants and flowers which are largely ignored by people.
There have been many sculptures about human and animal development and evolution, but rarely about flora. This sculpture brings the importance of plants to the subject of serious art study. Perhaps it is time to invest money in serious art than on boring luxury products that are featured everyday on hundreds of luxury blogs.
