Nature Dissected is a sort of translation -- a sculptural process where I select from various images and place them together to carve out a new visual statement. This work reflects my vision of nature as still lifes and objects of design, based upon my interpretation of color, design and feeling. Focusing on the intimate details of these plants, I see how the man-made world of design is influenced by these nuances and I feel the foundation of masculine and feminine energy surge as I create them. For me, nature is the greatest teacher when it comes to art.
