Coccinellidae is meant to be a playful piece. Since ladybugs often feast in large groups, and I wanted to show them in those large grouped patches. The vase is a white base to accentuate the bright red body of the insects.
Symbiosis is a visual commentary on the relationship between self and environment. The vessels act as a manmade element while each of the attached ornaments, inspired by local species, compliment the shape and movement of each piece. Each work reflects the impressionable and impactful nature of how mankind interacts with the natural world, and vice versa.
