‘The Natural, The Eternal’ explores how what we deem worthy of a material ties a level of importance to it. Our desire to habituate and control all that is found rather than created by us often leads us to modify or destroy. Historically, bronze has been a cultural marker of decadence and power, being a material reserved for classical portraiture and religious monuments. The seemingly inconsequential fragments of life in the form of decaying wood which my work presents, have been elevated in importance, perhaps to the status of a human. Yet they are a part of the constant alterations of nature to our will which unfolds in the modern day.
