Out of Longing

October 31, 2023

This body of work is inspired by mythical creatures, religious objects, funeral jewelry, and anthropomorphic animals, which have symbolic meaning and embody our longing for what we don’t have as well as what we wish did.
The work is made from found insect parts assembled chimerically referencing Buddhist and Hindu deities, transformed into copper, then enameled. Insects are chosen in a similar manner to which animals are used in children’s stories—creating a psychological distance.  Their color is reminiscent of flesh tones—retaining a sense of their origins, from within us.
