For those who follow the work of artist Mathilde Roussel, her latest art installation titled 'Life of Grass' may look suspiciously familiar. That is because it is a continuation of her original series showcased back in 2010 at the Invisible Dog Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. Comprised of two new sculptures, this exhibit better shows the transition each one makes over time.

Once again tackling the human form, the Life of Grass installation depicts the different stages the grass grows in. According to the artist, "The natural world, ingested as food, becomes a component of human being. Through these anthropomorphic and organic sculptures made of soil and wheat grass seeds, I strive to show that food."

Life of Grass is currently showing at the Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art in Nashville, Tennessee.
