"Vile Flora" SPECIAL EDITION By Shea Hardacre
[ *SPECIAL EDITION* Copy of the book comes with a hand painted ceramic display figure inspired by the art and aesthetic of Vile Flora. Each piece is painted using acrylic and oil paint with a clear coat to protect, and comes signed by the artist. Featuring two sculpt styles of a short potted flower, and a tall vase with flower. Also features both a "clean" and "dirty" paint job to mirror the difference in texture found within the book. These figures are art objects reflecting the dripping depressive vegetation found within the Vile Flora book. ]
“Amongst our biota lies the true depressive absence of human life, the pristine texture of organic nature. Amidst a pink skyline does drip a potted plant, unaware of it's power and implication. Through garden doorways and hidden behind manicured walls, gives way to the Vile Flora depicted within."
