Fruit Sculptures Made Up Of Gemstones: Decoration Or Decay?

Kathleen Ryan keeps posting moldy fruits made up of gemstones in her ongoing series.

It takes 8 weeks to make and decorate one such item. Ryan shares with New York Times, “The sculptures are beautiful and pleasurable, but there’s an ugliness and unease that comes with them”

Above shown sculpture is names as “Green-Eyed Monster (2019) and has a measurement of 19.5 x 28.5 x 17.5 inches.

She used gemstones like Aventurine, amethyst, labradorite, Ching Hai jade, sesame jasper, serpentine, freshwater pearl, mother of pearl, marble, lodolite, smokey quartz, grey agate, clear quartz, magnesite, tree agate, citrine, amazonite, bone, grey feldspar, yellow quartz, forest green serpentine, jasper, pink opal, Czech glass, steel pins. All these are attached to a coated polystyrene.
