Cheetah, 2019. Ceramic, handmade paint.
In an anthropocentric world that we live in, humanity sees less of animals, but more of domestication. From dogs that we love, the pigs that we eat, to the tigers we see in zoos, often times we forget how often, and how less we actually interact with animals. As stewards of nature, humans should learn more about the animals that we share the planet with, as we forget that we do sometimes. By exploring various animals that are esoteric and/or endangered, I sculpt unfamiliar animals in a range of colours, but not of their own, so we could see them in a different light, giving them personality and attitude. I hope that, by making space at home for the sculptures I create will remind humanity to make a little space for these species in their hearts.
