Fragility II
4 x 6 in.

My work explores the complex relationships between human consciousness and nature. I explore the beauty, impermanence, fragility and vulnerability of nature. Forms such as seeds, pods, and bones show the foundation, structure, and core of life; while also exploring aspects of time, aging, hiding things, and revealing certain things. The sexual nature of these organic images refers to vulnerability, and sexual violation and exploitation.
