Artist’s statement

Architecture is a feature of our world, continually allowing for the growth of population. Its constant evolution creates a collection of structures that form concrete jungles and city skylines. When an individual thinks of the word ‘building’, thoughts of unnatural creation come to mind. While these structures are built with synthetic materials, their origins lie within nature itself. My work is a series of photographs that capture natural and organic patterns evident within modern architecture. These photographs represent the designs and shapes that architects have used for the form to follow its function.
