Wait… what are we looking at here? Yes, it’s a metal garden, by London based artist Zadok Ben David, made up of 12,000 cut steel flowers & plants. The vintage, text-book looking botanical specimens are black, hence the title Blackfield, but hold on a second… if you walk around to the other side of this lovely ‘field’… YES, the opposite side of this breath-taking installation is painted in stunning color! Gorgeous.
