Blossom was made of synthetic velvet and fabric dye by Polly Apfelbaum in 2000. This piece has been featured in the MoMA but it isn't currently on view there. When I first saw this I thought it was just a pretty arraignment to look like a flower blossom. however once I read the description it was clear that the artist intended something else. This is supposed to be an abstract portrait of the PowerPuff girl Blossom. I included both pictures and honestly I don't see the connection, which is probably the whole point. I really do like this piece, i think it would be cool if it were made of tile and was used in home decoration.
