My work plays with the architecture of nature and organic growth. By identifying patterns and motifs that occur in the natural world in different contexts and at different scales, both macroscopic and microscopic, I have developed a formal, aesthetic vocabulary that I use to construct hybrid sculptural forms, half real, half surreal.
As much as a loved the work, I also really love the way that the artist himself spoke about it. Not only is his work incredibly aesthetically pleasing; he believes that "art can play an important role in humanizing scientific practice" and that work like his own can make " it more accessible, especially in a field as fraught and emotive as infectious disease." In that same vein,his work has been featured in publications like the Emerging Infectious Diseases magazine, a publication from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention.He also speaks to the trend of artists such of himself returning to "simpler materials and craft", in his case paper, in response to an age very much dominated by digital media.
I will be keeping track of this artist and hope to draw inspiration from his work in the future.
