Sylvie Fleury frequently brings together icons of Pop Art and a Minimalist aesthetic. The mushroom evokes psychotropic drugs as well as the fairy-tale atmosphere found in Alice in Wonderland’s giant fungi. This fibreglass sculpture, varnished with multiple layers of automotive paint, recalls in turn the processes of contemporary industry. Sylvie Fleury creates a hybrid work, formed by a subtle blending of feminine and masculine codes.
