‘Never before have we had such an awareness of what we are doing to our planet, and never before have we had the power to do something about it…Surely we have a responsibility to care for our planet. The future of humanity, and indeed all life on Earth, now depends on us.’
Sir David Attenborough
My works reflect my sensitivity towards environmental issues and animal exploitation, inviting critical response on human’s interaction with nature.
Experimenting with biomaterials, living organisms, clay, wood and mixed media, I create sculptures and installations that combine latest scientific findings within imaginary settings. The artworks focus on the interconnectedness of all matter, discoveries of communication and interaction within the natural world, above and below ground.
In response to pressing concerns of our time, my investigations and experimentations centre on the quest for sustainable, innovative materials and products.
Intrigued by latest scientific findings of the powers of fungi and mythical symbolism, my works reflect its astounding properties as a sustainable food resource, a decomposer, possible recycler and a solution to building material that repairs and works with, rather than against, nature’s rhythm.
By appropriating these materials and adding fabricated objects, my works seek to highlight the constructive side of mushrooms, address environmental issues and communicate the wonder of this organism.
Artists have traditionally engaged with, reflected upon and were inspired by important events and discoveries in our history, acting as observers and upholder of the collective consciousness.
Through my practice I seek to further people’s awareness to issues concerning our planet.
By attempting to make to the audience a participant of the work, I wish to awaken and remind them of nature’s incredible intelligence and efficiency.
