"Technological advancements are rapidly changing our social and physical environment. Our world has become over synthesized, from our biologically enhanced food to our filtered existence on social media. Even though we are fully conscious of this fabrication, the beauty the veil creates seduces us. The pieces I create are constructed from synthetic materials to highlight this notion. I use floral imagery, symmetry, sparkly paint, and simple form to seduce and distract the viewer. Disguised amongst the flowers are geometric forms to pull back the shroud to reveal the truth.
I use 3D printing as the base form for each piece I create. The model is programmed to accommodate for fabricated components which are added to each piece that fit perfectly to each piece. Once I have a 3D print at my bench, it is painted with acrylic paints to enhance the form and reflect the concept of each individual piece."
