Angela Bulloch
Painted resin acrylic
26 x 14 x 14 cm (10 1/4 x 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 in)
Edition of 25 plus 5 artist's proofs
Cast in acrylic resin and finished with paint in the shade RAL 1028 Melon Yellow, Melancholyflower was produced as a limited-edition of just 25 pieces. Angela Bulloch’s works manifest her interest in systems, patterns and rules, as well as the creative territory between mathematics and aesthetics. Offering playful insight into Bulloch’s core themes, including a twist on words in the title that opens up the work to be more than the sum of its linguistic parts, this object was created by the artist as a special 30th-anniversary edition to recall some of her earliest works dating from 1987.
