Protected below tall glass cloches, Lauren Pruen’s botanical specimens sprout from root to bloom. The artist shapes skinny strips of wire into tubers and stems that maintain cloth florals, which she typically paints for variation in leaf coloration and added element. Each delicate sculpture is an ode to pure life varieties and the organic research of centuries previous, recreated as treasured three-dimensional specimens value preserving.
