This collection draws from two worlds: the natural and the commercial. By juxtaposing synthetic and organic elements, I aim to exhibit the tension between these opposing forces. Hand-drawn illustrations are taken apart and combined with manufactured objects such as magazine clippings and clothing tags. I then further deconstruct these collages into individual cut-elements inspired by the natural world—florals, insects, greenery—and then recombine them into three-dimensional collages mimicking the growth of nature, such as a field of flowers or moss growing on the base of a tree. The work embodies a shift in value from the commercial to the natural world, reflecting the potential of human creativity—the ability to deconstruct and reconstitute the material world into something new – and hopefully - beautiful.
