UnNatural History II is a a mirrored miniature world, its one side mounted upside-down and the other righted. It presents landscapes that are simultaneously real and subliminal, beautiful and devastating, refined and abstracted. The work seeks to present dualities, whose tensions underscore the disparity between the land itself, and the viewer’s projections.
Ink drawings in support of the project and its research can be viewed in the “paper” section.
