This collection is an ode to the unhinged climate of our times, a reverence to the resilience of nature despite all odds, and a love letter to our generation, the first to bear witness to the strangest of environmental shifts, and for whom eminent existential questions are ordinary forms of pondering.
In parallel to our eco anxious culture, my instinct craves comfort in what grounds and tickles my need for reveries. Despite her power for destruction, it is grand supreme mother nature that fills me with fascination and hope. The roots, the webs of multicellular organisms, the simplest proliferation of buds or stems, are the strength I want to emanate and capture. With my work, I seek to immortalize these phenomenon in their growth and hence I spawn an ecosystem of sculptural creatures meant to inhabit your bodies, decorate our skins and fingers as to safeguard our sanity with symbolic armature.
In my new work, you will find some simplified styles and some bolder statement showpieces. The stone settings are becoming smaller and the chain-links are growing fuller. References to florals, algae, minerals and symbols of protection are to be found. Indeed there is a return of the finger pinched petals and bows in new formations, a nod to orbs and boulders for their weighty yet dependable virtues and shield like shapes as armours for shelter.
