Phantom Plants

Statement

My work finds its nourishment in a compassionate contemplation of the natural world.

 Organic shapes undergo a metamorphic process that transforms them into imaginative habitants of an uncanny forest.

Through my artistic process I protect them from their destiny to otherwise wither and disappear.

 I aspire to maintain the fragility and sensitivity of the existing nature, while using durable materials. It’s an act of remembrance and preservation. The ephemeral becomes eternal.

The phantom plants, disconnected from their natural environment, still reverberate the aura of the place they belong to, transcending into a poetic emotional landscape.
