Energy does not die, it merely transforms.
This body of work is centered on the theory that ìwe are made of starstuffî, connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the universe atomically. The work seeks to represent a complex multi-layered human and takes influence from metaphysics, in particular ontology ñ the philosophical study of the nature of being, becoming, existence and reality. In this way the work serves as an exploration into human existence and evolution through the use of the artists own anatomy, in turn as a means of self-exploration and reflection. Making visual connections along the way to animal, plant, earth and universe the body of work produced is designed to intrigue the viewer on reflecting on their own existence.
