Upon reading an article about his work in Sunset Magazine, I was very intrigued by the work of Andy Cao.


His beautiful installation Cloud II in Malibu, CA–which was featured in the article–was so beautiful and ephemeral that I had to find out more. After doing some more research I discovered a video of Cao himself discussing his work.

(Yes, I stole the title, but I thought it was too clever not to use myself)

Lullaby Garden, Corner Stone Gardens in Sonoma, CA, 2004

I love the wistful feeling the fishing-line fence lends to the piece; enclosing the plants but still leaving an air of vulnerability to the work.

The beautiful lines of the work Cao and Perrot produce is just breathtaking.
