Organism is a sculptural representation and study of life made from found objects. At the time (2008), Cancer was, once again, becoming a regular point of conversation for my family. I was both frustrated and fascinated by the growth rate and growth shapes that cancerous cells could take throughout the human body. I was both disgusted and inspired. Just as ugly as Cancer can be (and is), I began to conclude that the disease was a perfect negative reflection of the beautiful growth found in life. Organism is my response. Monochromatic and made from discarded materials, I took a stream of conscious approach to allowing the forms to take shape and seemingly “grow” out of itself.
