The works in this series seek to collapse the boundary between human and nature by exploring the similar narratives of body and earth, specifically trees. The skin of the figure is created with the "skin" of a tree. Being classified into groups, naturally exfoliating our skin/bark, having roots and uprooting ourselves/being uprooted, hosting other living organisms, weeping, having limbs and being susceptible to diseases, are some of the commonalities I address in the series.
I construct the sculptures by piecing together tree bark that I have collected from shelter belts and the forest floor. I often use materials from specific types of trees with specific characteristics to communicate the various concepts in my work. After a sculpture is complete, it is coated with resin for added strength and to preserve the natural materials.
