Liz Trosper | Dandelion and Rose - Glasstire

Via the gallery:
“Dandelion & Rose, a 34-foot site-specific vinyl installation is viewable from the inside and outside of the gallery, and will be up from July 25 – September 25, 2020. The installation plays off the meme titled Dandelion vs. Rose, which first originated about 6 years ago. The artist describes, ‘What interested me about this meme was the fine point it put on human intervention in cultivation and breeding, its powerful influence and unintended consequences. As a weed, a plant that is not valued where it is growing and is growing vigorously, dandelion comes from dent de lion, French for the lion’s tooth.'”
