Gift of the Artist

Dalya Luttwak’s sculptures reimagine the root systems of plants on a large-than-life scale. For this sculpture, the Washington-based artist looked to poison ivy roots for inspiration. The sculpture climbs up and across a tree, mimicking and exaggerating the root’s behavior. Luttwak draws inspiration from her study of plants and her collection of roots found in her garden. “I wish to uncover the hidden beauty of roots,” the artist said. “My sculptures reveal what nature prefers to conceal.”
