Ashmead's Companions, 2014

 

Crisp autumn morning.

Dark, rich soil.

My mother walks through the orchard.

I often look at my work as a daydreaming child might look at the clouds, to see what animal or face might appear in the billows and wisps. I found this piece reminiscent of a gnarled old tree trunk, perhaps an apple tree, and so I searched for an old golden-toned apple whose name would evoke the feel of antiquity and life and growth that I see in this piece. I chose an old English heirloom apple tree, Ashmead’s, described by one nursery as, “an old English russet apple, medium size, golden-brown skin with a crisp nutty snap. Fruit explodes with champagne-sherbert juice infused with a lingering scent of orange blossoms.”

Ashmead’s Russett was the first of Greene’s Molten Fissures series: golden toned, heat-painted, melted, pierced and perforated, abstract, organic steel wall pieces, suggesting growth and energy, age and decay. The triptych was later completed, with Ashmead’s Companion I and II the ragged, carved edges between them hinting at decomposing foliage or fractal coastlines, torn apart.
