Decoration and Decay: Moldy Fruit Sculptures Formed From Gemstones

In an ongoing series of sculptures, artist Kathleen Ryan creates oversized moldy fruits using precious gemstones.

“The sculptures are beautiful and pleasurable, but there’s an ugliness and unease that comes with them,†Ryan tells the New York Times. Each sculpture can take up to 8 weeks for Ryan to fabricate and involve a variety of gemstones.

For example, the sculpture above entitled, Green-Eyed Monster (2019) measures 19.5 x 28.5 x 17.5 inches and is made from: 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 on coated polystyrene.

Ryan is represented by the Josh Lilley Gallery and Francois Ghebaly Gallery. You can also find more or her work on Instagram.
