Walk past the pristine gold exterior, and the first thing you’ll see is Andrea Nhuch’s jarring blue bubble wrap sculpture weaved through, almost suffocating, a massive tree trunk. “I knew I didn’t just want to wrap the tree — I wanted to have a conversation between the tree and the material,” Nhuch said.

Initially, she was going to paint the sculpture pink, but then she realized that she “wanted to do something that didn’t look like a plant … and blue doesn’t usually grow in nature,” she added. Nhuch named the sculpture Blue Moon, paying respect both to its color and also the rare opportunity to partake in an exhibit like Fancy Nasty.

On a wall, self-taught Miamian artist Andrea Nhuch allures us with her industrial bubble wrap. She contorts and shapes the plastic and treats it with resin and auto-grade spray paint, giving it a shine that’s ever-so-sexy. The glossy finish appears like lipstick.

”Some people don’t realize it’s bubble wrap,” says Nhuch. “I call it shapeable plastic, actually. Also, transforming this material into something beautiful tricks the eye.

Nhuch incorporates the protective nature of bubble wrap to create small parcels, that when painted in monochromatic colors are reminiscent of a Louise Nevelson wall piece.
