I’m interested on how the meaning and nature of objects changed under different narrative, e.g. as nature objects, museum collections, souvenirs or in Animism. My recent work focuses on the deformed nature objects.

‘There is an universal tendency amongst mankind to conceive all beings like themselves, and to transfer to every object those qualities with which they are familiarly acquainted, and of which they are intimately conscious.” (Hume, 1757)

I am investigating the relationship between the plant-human hybrids and human’s perception of reality through my paintings. I see these plant-human hybrids as objects with personalities, which possibly are also the abstract projections of ourselves.
