Based on a cocoon form in nature, this is part of a series of cocoon-inspired pieces - some more abstract. I am interested in woven forms, their functions and the instinctive process of weaving. My work reflects an interest in nature?s cyclical persistence, vitalism and the essence of life. I create mixed media sculptures wrought as primal, linear, nest-like structures often in an apparent state of emergence, growth or metamorphosis. A mix of delicate and strong, earthy and ethereal, they are often an extension of my drawings.
