Wall Hanging Ceramics (Part 1/4)

I create detailed sculptural monstrosities to hint at the relevant issues of genetic engineering and biotechnology that are occurring in today’s world. Monsters were and still are used to control, deter, challenge, inspire, threaten and seduce human beings in different situations. By using the power of the unknown and the mysterious, the visceral urge to touch and a high level of detail, I lure the viewer in and make them want to investigate and question. These works are primarily made from clay with other elements added to help convey concept. They can be needy, invasive, harmful, helpful, curious, unpredictable, highly intelligent and oh so productive when ‘engineered’ correctly.
