“My artistic concerns and interests are influenced by concepts and theories of plant culture in the current environmental crisis. This includes plant blindness, post-naturalism and hybrid material. The creative process explores the relationship and interaction between humans, plants, and technology. It also looks at the function and meaning of weeds in today’s society.
“By bringing the viewer’s focus to the vegetal world in an evocative, thoughtful way, I examine the symbiosis and conflict between man and nature while making the familiar more visible. My aim is to capture a memory of the present era using an environment of textures that reflects the diversity and adaptability of life. It contemplates a new understanding of a ‘clean landscape’, where plastic is incorporated in nature.”
