This series reflects my concern for societies disconnect from nature. There is a need to re-establish the umbilical connection to the earth. To create and care for our own personal environments in an intimate relationship that feeds and flourishes. These reflections are further explored in a series of paintings of fauna and flora interconnected with threads of copper conscience forming giant vivariums.
Fynbos Terraria I: the protea bush's organic form is enclosed in a copper terrarium exploring its geometric form as a whole that developed naturally in the painting process.
