Lussanet constructs giant-sized sculptures of fruit and flowers using the technique of papier-mache and painting them brilliant colors with her own finely ground pigment. She uses materials from the fallas (Valencia) popular floats. These organic forms create a dream world in a natural setting, whether displayed indoors or outdoors. She has choreographed performances with actors manipulating her sculptural pieces, where the landscape plays a prominent role and the natural elements are key players. She is currently working on a larger project called "A World of Choice," based on Hieronymus Bosch's The Garden of Earthly Delights. Her employment of distortion of scale, brilliant color and illogical juxtaposition creates a visual imagery that instills a conscientious respect for our environment and healthy food choices. Life is both fragile and strong like these paper fruits.
