Lotus Eater


Artist Statement: My work seeks to study the intersection between conventionality, rationalism and the extraordinary.

About this piece: By working in nature, I explore the biologic, dreamlike and often magical properties of various micro habitats and the greater macrocosm. With each piece, I hope to reveal the uncommon beauty of a particular environment. I invite the viewer to discover something completely unexpected and wonderful; to unveil the treasures of hidden or overlooked spaces. Lotus Eater is part of a series I’ve been working on: The Subtle Dreams of Ethereal Things. The piece is based on a close-up photograph of the inside of a flower, with the filaments, pollen, etc.
