Anselm Kiefer

I think the materials and colours in Kiefers work is quite similar to the initial work I was looking. I like how the artist has taken a very familiar looking thing as the sunflower and turned it into the almost alien object, but with just enough familiarity for it to be recognisable yet you still find yourself questioning whether it really is what it is or not. I want to be able to use natural materials in this way were it looks like it almost doesn’t belong yet fits perfectly within the art work. Finding just the right amount of ambiguity may be difficult .
