“I’m fascinated with the natural world – especially the little parts we feel compelled to pick up and keep. I’ve always been a collector, and I’m really interested in exploring this common impulse to possess pieces of nature which we find beautiful or curious. These paintings are an extension of this impulse. I’m interested in how we assign complex layers of value to these objects based different factors, like rarity, historical context, scientific significance, subjective notions of beauty, and, for some people, even metaphysical or healing properties.”
