By critiquing both past and present histories of ecological atrocity, this series of paintings subvert dominant global narratives while envisioning new ones. Through an exploration of symbiotic relationships, the figures in my work have stakes and agency in their environments. Drawing on parallels within form, color, and space allows me to investigate the potential for what I consider metamorphic organic poetry.
