The most recent body of work that I have created is one which revolves around the awkward, violent and loving relationships that exist between humans, animals and the natural world. The situations and relationships depicted in the work are references to times in which I catch myself echoing my own childhood relationships with animals. As a child I often displayed the inability to recognize the order and requirements of nature. This disconnect is still evident in my life as I often mirror the same delusions of my adolescence.
The figures are often references to historical figures, generally explorers, which I adopt while reading biographical accounts of when natural and human worlds collide. I am interested in stories of Antarctic explorers and expeditions in which assumed knowledge of conditions ultimately failed the members involved. I extrapolate stories from the lives of these people and interject my own awkward experience of natural disconnect to create the myths of my life.
