Artist’s statement

My body of work explores our warped sense of reality due to our incredible fixation on technology. This fixation is causing us to lose a sense of the natural world around us and even the communities that we live in. My sculptures explore the senses of touch, sight, sound; essential qualities to us as human beings that are being taken away through technological addiction. Contrasting colour schemes represent life draining from the natural elements that we fail to appreciate into technological devices. My work asks a question: ‘What if we could only interact with nature through virtual reality?’
