my practice is an exploration of natural sciences through a multi disciplinary practice that includes drawing, photography, video, found objects and installation.

concepts stem from many aspects of natural science including current medical research and natural history.

i combine these with the symbolism associated with vanitas and memento mori that includes skulls, butterflies, flowers and shadows to reference the transience of life and the fragility of human existence.

i like to emulate the sense of awe and wonder associated with the cabinets of curiosities or wunderkammer that were first established in the seventeenth century in an attempt to categorise and tell stories about the wonders of the natural world, offering a strange link between ancient myth and scientific reality. i respond to the current relationship with the natural world which man seems determined to destroy whilst simultaneously re creating, cloning and de extincting.
