Artist Statement
My work tends to focus on a central idea of the interaction between humans and other species. I enjoy exploring the diversity and intricacies of nature, and I use materials that highlight these qualities.
I made The Imaginary to create an experience with the structure of an imaginary creature. I feel a sentimental, warm feeling towards these pieces I make, which I view as organisms, and I want to share that feeling with the viewer, by inviting them inside the structure, which reveals it as a made object, but also envelopes the viewer in the relationship with the organism.
