Hybrid Awakening

Hybrid forms growing from walls or floors, sitting on pedestals, hanging from ceilings, adapting to the space they inhabit. Originating from what is seen, felt, remembered, or envisioned. Becoming a menagerie when installed in clusters, filling a void as couples, embracing autonomy when solo.  A skeleton evolves from crumbs of past sculptures, detritus from nature, discovered materials, fragments, or objects. Coating the construction is a layered, impasto painted textured skin.

Reality and metaphor emerge from process, imitating the cycle of living organisms as it relates to humanity.

Wondering about growth, transformation, and decay.
