Concept
'I dream of megalithic times' series embarks us into an interior environment composed of various speleothem-like shapes erected into silicone skins with earthly pigments kneaded into them. Evocative fleshy consistency, indefinable colors and gnarly textures devise an alternative realm that provokes cognitive dissonance. A realm where the presumed functions of the pieces seem to be undomesticated, morphing different affordances into one element. Alien earthlings form an inverted troglodyte interior relating to a primal identity of the visitor, who curiously and sensuously uncovers the whimsical environment. Like a karst topography adorned with horizontal lines of frothy puddles and bolt upright rubbery stone formations, this series relates to the natural on myriad scales, from mold growth to canyons. I dream of megalithic times invites the viewer to ponder the borderlands between inside and outside, between their preconceived ideas of materiality and their imagination. I dream of megalithic times embarks us into an interior environment composed of various speleothem-like shapes erected into silicone skins with earthly pigments kneaded into them.
