Garden of Roses by Andrea Cook

The Garden of Roses began as a large scale, soft sculpture, installation. Roses have always been my favorite flower. They are so lovely and elegant. However, they only last for a short time. I wanted to find a way to capture their beauty and create a permanent way to enjoy them. Each piece is composed of hand dyed, painted, or pure fabrics made from canvas, burlap, muslin, denim, and cotton blends. The fabric is dipped into an archival glue and formed into rose designs ranging in shape, size, and color. Each unique design is textural and sculptural.
