The work of Zemer Peled would boggle the minds of many. He has created a series of intricate and organic flowers out of colorful ceramic shards. Full of layers, hues and patterns, the sculptures manage to look realistic at first glance. Of course, almost immediately afterwards it's clear these blooms would be something found on an alien planet.
Zemer Peled manages to strike a balance between real and surreal beautifully. Recently shown at the COLLECT Art Fair, this is most evident in the scale of each sculpture. Contemporist writes, "Zemer Peled also constructs much larger cactus-like pieces that can tower several feet tall or even span floor to ceiling." That would be a sight to see.
