DISTANT SHORES & BIOMORPHIC DAYDREAMS
28 Feb - 03 Apr, 2013 10 Chancery Lane Gallery
The suite of works are a meditation on the passage of nature’s cycle and the temporal flow of birth and regeneration. The images are at once generative and sensuous, macabre and degenerate, opulent and awe-inspiring, carrying within them the vitality of the living, and the vulnerability of decay. For philosopher Michel Foucault, "heterotopias" designates real or imagined spaces of escape/departure, transformation, or revelation.
