Ridges-circa 2017 「Excellence Prize」
My work is the manifestation of doubts concerning my relationship with nature. This series of works are made during my time in Japan, Kanazawa. Through the repetitive, labour-intensive actions of collecting, mold making and casting of botanical elements in my immediate environment, I look into the psychological aspect of my urge to connect with nature. The result of these activities also holds an archival quality in my artworks. These processes are like an accumulation of “vocabularies” which are later visualized into a "language" as an expression of my thoughts in regards to my environment.
