Coral Eden

Miami International Airport
Miami, Florida

Coral Eden was derived from photographs of brain coral taken by the artist with a macro lens. The original literal image, only inches in scale, is enlarged to such a huge scale so as to create an abstraction, a textural surface that evokes the natural organic forms of the sea life of South Florida. These two hand-finished travertine walls, approximately 30' x 90', provide a textural relief juxtaposed against the clean modernist architecture of the Terminal Wide Improvements to the Miami International Airport and the new South Terminal.
