dc.description.abstractMy studio practice is based in ceramic and mixed media practices, and blurs the lines between sculpture and installation. It is strongly inspired by the remains of the current world around the human existence. I am interested in where human and nature intersect and diverge and am drawn to “natural” objects and beings that address similarities, differences and ironies present in the notion of being human. Through this writing I explain my thoughts on this as well as how my practice works to present related questions to the viewers of my work. I will discuss how these ideas informed the Master of Fine Arts thesis exhibition Human by Nature by Human, and how the work brought to light some of my own human tendencies.
