Bed of Roses

If one stands on the base of the sculpture facing out he can lean back and be in the bed of roses. The digital print on canvas depicts flowered bedding and pillows. In the center is what looks like an indentation where a person had previously been. Here are three views. The video shows me talking about Bed of Roses during a tour of an exhibition in which it was included at the Silvermine Arts Center.
