Explosive Grenade Collection by Bran Symondson
Bran takes this destructive weapon, the hang grenade and transforms it into unique art.
Meticulously, Bran has cut out American dollar bills and thoughtfully collaged the grenade, completely covering the surface. On top, by the pin, Bran places a real butterfly resting over the grenade.
On the side of the grenade, Bran has spelt the word 'NO LOVE' or 'NO ONE' using the letters cut out from the dollar bills.
The butterfly represents the fragility of life, and how its faith is in the hands of slippery weapons such as the grenade, symbolic of the unpredictability of life.
On the flip side, these pieces also explore the juxtaposition between nature and man-made destructive tools.
