Throughout history animals have long been accepted as essential to humankind’s growth and wellbeing. A strong relationship with wildlife has played a major role in human philosophy and the development of culture. Direct encounters with animals evoke a sudden wonder and respect. Their vivid life makes us aware of the source that creates and sustains all beings. Long before humans existed, they worked out the sequences of life in millions of variations.
The various life forms that I choose to represent in my work are organic and temporary. Yet they are also connected to the universal patterns that design our reality, arrangements that involve all of space and time. These artworks are my way of creating sacred temples to these fleeting forms of insect, bird and beast. I’m attempting to pause the flow of time, study the form and function of each animal and then create a lasting and celebrated homage.
