Paine is not interested in a romantic idea of nature existing in a "pure natural setting." He's more interested in how everything gets jumbled together, which he examines using subjects such as the fecund, beautiful and deadly poisonous fungus in our photograph.

This work is a beautiful counterpoint to Paine's large-scale works, a number of which were shown on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, proving that you don't need to have a monumental space to collect works by one of our favorite artists. This piece is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and has been exhibited both at the MoMA and the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art.

Roxy Paine's critically acclaimed body of work ranges from life-size stainless steel trees and boulders to computerized machines that make unique paintings, sculptures, and drawings. Using technology to render and replicate objects found in nature, Paine engages ideas of modern society’s relationship to the environment, and the paradoxes inherent in an increasingly artificial world of objects. Paine is best known for a series of metal tree sculptures known as Dendroids. In the artist's own words, “I've processed the idea of a tree and created a system for its form. I take this organic majestic being and break it down into components and rules. The branches are translated into pipe and rod.” 

Exhibited internationally since the early 1990s, Paine is the recipient of numerous awards, including the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship and the Trustees Award for an Emerging Artist by the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art. His work has been installed in the world's most prominent venues including New York's Central Park, Madison Square Park, the Whitney Biennial and on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
