Inspired by phylogenetic trees and Google Earth, Cladogram represents a drone photo or a photo taken from a plane showing a “satellite” image of mass urbanization and habitat loss. Mimicking a computer chip and silicon valley, the natural world in a language of DNA has been replaced with a technological world that communicates in bytes.
X-RAYS OF THE SOUL COLLECTION: A collection of powerful black and white abstract expressionistic paintings inspired by the importance of species conservation and my love for science, these paintings symbolize the intimate relationship we have with the natural world by using anatomical images that demonstrate our connection with nature. My studies in veterinary medicine and love for science and the natural world inspired the creation of narrative showing the inescapable connection between humankind and the natural world. Powerful, black and white images seem like “x-rays of the soul” showing magnified and distorted images of internal human anatomy that mirror the external natural world.
