The focus of my work is the complex interaction between humans and the natural world. Mythology and art have been intertwined for as long as there have been humans on earth, and my body of work explores this connection. Art history is a continuing theme and appears in references to 17th century paintings of dead game, 18th century cabinets of curiosity, and 19th century natural history museums — tracing a view of humankind’s dominion over nature that has implications for our current time. I also find myself immersed in the contradictory stories of early naturalists, whose fascination with nature led them to kill and collect specimens across the globe, while they simultaneously laid the foundations of modern ecology.
