Wax, found objects and metal, 54x49x14cm

Nature is a recurring theme in my work. I have a particular fascination with the sea urchin, a harbinger of ecological change, whose fragile beauty is largely overlooked. The imprints of urchin specimens and fragments buried in wax come to life when lit from behind, the ambiguous forms taking on an aura of preciousness.
