This sculpture was created specifically for The LEGO Company’s new office campus in Billund, Denmark.
After seeing the pop-art nature themed artwork in my traveling exhibit Nature POP, the LEGO company purchased a copy of my Confetti Rose for one of their new office buildings.
About 15 years ago I paid my first of what was to become many visits to the LEGO company’s old office in Billund. In the lobby stood original sculptures built with LEGO bricks and other mixed media, created by Danish artists in the 1980s as part of an experimental project called “Homo Futuris”. During the decades prior to my visit, those sculptures had been a big part of my inspiration to create art with LEGO bricks, and I was not expecting to see them when I arrived. It was breathtaking and life-changing to see them in person.
I am humbled by the fact that my own work now stands in their place at the LEGO company’s new Billund campus.
