Blackfield is an installation created by London-based artist Zadok Ben David.

The artwork is based on Victorian botanical illustrations transformed into more than 12,000 steel cut plants growing up from the sand carpet covering the gallery floor. The name Blackfield is obvious, until you walk around the artwork, and the black field of flowers is transforming into a sparkling field of colors. Each flower is a wonderful, detailed work of art.
