Am I getting philosophical or just a little quirky?
At the moment I am motherboard-less!

Artist: Norman Mooney
(Material: Cast aluminum and pigment)
Wall Flowers are new work by Brooklyn based artist Norman Mooney. This is his first adventure in colour sculpture.
The joy, the beauty, the wonder and etherealness of this bursting yellow pollen has taken my breath away and as I keep looking at the sculpture, goose bumps start playing their role!
