Bizarre Turns

Statement

Much of my artistic practice and inspiration comes from a curiosity about objects and experiences related to the human existence. For this project I focused on products of technology and science, as we, humans, perceive them. 

Taking advantage of my educational background (a Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology) I referenced my old science textbooks to collect source material for this series of sculptures. Humans have long been creating reductive illustrations of cellular structures, and folded proteins, rendering them in a way that is easy to understand, and artistically interesting. What a curious thing to do! What a vast collection of work there is! I used this as a starting point and began exploring many different directions of building work, allowing myself to expand on any idea freely.

In the end I created a body of work which includes some articles for adoration, some articles for consideration, and some articles to use. Is there a difference? Maybe it’s all lighting?
