The central installation is reminiscent of corals under the sea, fungi growing on the barks of trees or blossoms in a forest, when in fact, the densely packed sculptural forms are traces of the artist’s fingers. The humble (and quintessentially urban) material of toilet paper is worked slowly, one piece at a time, each layer created after the first has dried. This work is a meditation on interconnectedness and the slow processes of nature.
The three-dimensional paintings are a kind of “urban veil” formed by breaking down everyday urban and industrial materials and fashioning them into organic forms and textures reminiscent of growth and decay in Nature. Cloth with its interwoven threads is used to reflect on how city life and the natural world are inextricably linked together.
