  • Concrete Earth Series

    This series of mixed-media sculptures creates perverted and grotesque fantasies of the natural environment in order to examine the physical specificity of nature. By replacing traditional earth with a concrete one, various types of forms can emerge from a soil that is no longer natural, each carrying its own characteristic, direction, trajectory and even intent. Witnessing the familiar behave in an unfamiliar and unnatural way haphazardly assigns an aesthetic to nature that feels sinister. To perceive this sinister scene as if through a dream-like state, with candy-colored hues and formally emotional expressions of roots and branches, speaks to the phenomenon of being simultaneously attracted to and repulsed by single object, and the uncontrollable duality of fantasy.
