Anolis consists of a Green Anole with his dewlap extended atop a tall, bottled vase. As a kid, I would catch these lizards all the time and the best time to catch them is when they were sunbathing on top of a solid object. I kept the glazing of the vase white to highlight the red throat and green body of the lizard.
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.
