 The shapes and colors of the plants look stunning, as if they were created with an aesthetic sense. My work is inspired by my everyday observations of nature and my fascination with how living creatures shape their bodies and the natural order of things.
The work begins with a collection of natural materials, casts, and resin molded to make specimens, which are then replicated and reconstructed into 'living things' that are different from the original species. This non-existent 'living thing' is not simply the creation of an imaginary creature. It is a dialogue with nature, exploring the universality of the forms that nature creates and revealing the fundamental structures of life.
The "living things", the forms of nature condensed and given form, not only reflect the local characteristics of the area where they were found, but also contain memories that cannot be created by human hands, giving them somehow feel lifelike.
