Untitled: beyond the human

This work was made in response to returning to the foundations of art practices, in mixed media, drawing, and painting and ethically, looking at what my values are as a being. A return to the fundamentals, light, middle, dark, in the creation of form always with a longing to connect with the world beyond the limitations of the hierarchical, privileged gaze of the human. A looking back art historically and spiritually to find where the ethics of form meet the ethics of multispecies survival. A re-sensitizing to the representation of empathy, attention, and engagements with non humans, “be they pets, weeds, pests, commensals, new pathogens, “wild” animals or technoscientific “mutants”.
