The exhibit “in the forever pile” invites you to explore the intricate tapestry of creations born from the artist’s relentless passion for repurposing and rejuvenating forgotten materials. Green’s enchanting artworks breathe life into the discarded, transforming them into objects of beauty, mystery, and meaning. She delves into the power of materials to trigger memories and emotions. By repurposing items with history, the artist taps into a collective sense of nostalgia, inviting viewers to reflect on their own experiences.
Wander through a mesmerizing collection that bridges the gap between the forgotten and the cherished. Witness broken chairs metamorphosing into sculptures that evoke emotions and memories. Encounter delicate mosaics meticulously crafted from seemingly insignificant scraps, each piece telling a silent tale of revival. “in the forever pile” is a testament to the artist’s deep connection with her materials, her dedication to sustainability, and her commitment to celebrating the overlooked. Green’s creations showcase her unique ability to give new life to discarded objects. Experience the wonder of transformation as everyday items are reimagined and reconfigured into works of art that defy their origins. Her inspiration drawn from natural forms such as bee hives, bird nests, and wasp nests, as well as the architectural marvels found in nature, like biomimicry, further underscores her innovative approach to creativity and sustainability.
Samuelle’s work serves as a reminder that beauty can emerge from the remnants of consumption, inspiring us to consider alternative paths for the objects we discard.
