James Mongrains Pistils 2003 from the Trevor Gallery in Seattle, WA reminds me of 1960 Minimalism Sculptor Card Andre with its direct placement on the floor, without any glue holding the objects in a fixed configuration. Meant to be displayed indoors or outdoors. Beside seeing four aspects of Carl Andres notorious and infamous contributions to the realm of sculpture by asking us via his art many questions about what we consider art and what defines it and what defines sculpture.This bizarrely beautiful sculpture is inspired by flowers, the plants sexual organs, eroticized (may be an instance of tautology). The pistil shapes are simplified and exaggerated almost to abstraction.
People dont know what it is and when asked, What IS that! James Mongrain is a listed & renowned Seattle glass artist with works in numerous museum permanent collections and collected by art lovers like Elton John. He worked as the chief gaffer for Dale Chihuly and is represented by the best galleries in Seattle and New York.In Corning Glass Museum permanent collection and other museum permanent collections. His brother is also an established, artist in painting and also in museum permanent collections. It is made of white glass cased over clear glass. The work is meant to be displayed on the floor with the flowers randomly clustered together. Takes up the space of a large coffee table. I would roughly estimate that you would need a diameter of 4 feet and largest 2 pistils are 3 feet in height.
Dimensions variable depending on how closely you arrange the pieces. One hairline fracture at the base of one due to temperature expansion in fixed space. Signed James Momgrain 200 3.
