Product Description

Birdie Lusch was a factory worker for most of her adult life. She began making art as a teenager, producing books and albums filled with drawings, collages and poetry. This facsimile of one of her sketchbooks explores the numerous forms of flowers in cases. The works are wonderfully varied even as they follow the same compositional formula: a pot filled with flowers sitting on a tabletop. Lusch worked with whatever materials happened to be on hand, repurposing them into her subject matter. Here, shirts, rugs and maps are refashioned into vases while pastry, meat and carpeting are transformed into flowers.
