Creatures of the Deep Deep, 13
Acrylic on panel
25" x 22"

"In these works I seek to portray a vacuous cybernetic dystopia populated by biomorphic figures recollecting, encountering, attacking, and sometimes just feeling each other out. These creatures represent an anthropomorphized amalgam of plant and animal elements, sometimes at odds with themselves, cavalcading at once elegantly and at the same time in a parade of reflexive destruction.Borrowing a language science fiction, I seek to explore the issues of a dystopic universe as it relates to contemporary concerns of the often corrosive yet beautiful relation between human animals and the botanic and geologic natural world we occupy."
