Royal Jarmon Reimagines the BIC Lighter in Latest 'RED FLOWER' SculpturesAs part of a new collaborative edition with Case Studyo.
Royal Jarmon is the next celebrated artist to collaborate with Case Studyo on a limited edition sculpture. Inspired by an original work called RED FLOWER, the partnered series encompasses cast aluminum works (each sized 25cm x 12cm x 8 cm) portraying the artist’s longstanding subject: the BIC lighter. A total of three versions are in the lineup: “Blue – orange flame,” “Yellow – blue flame,” and “Purple – red flame.”
“A seemingly banal object that holds a special place in the artist’s heart, sparking fond memories of growing up on the family farm; from burning stuff as a young rascal to sneaking off to smoke his first cigarettes,” said Case Studyo in a statement. “The work is aptly titled ‘the red flower’, referencing Jungle Book and the term the animals used to describe the fire of civilization.”
Each signed and numbered edition arrives in a bespoke wooden box. Visit Case Studyo’s website to purchase a RED FLOWER.
