I continue to address the pertinent problems of the ecosystem and extinction caused by the climate crisis. Once again I reference Darwin and his theory of evolution.
In creating an artificial environment in the form of the aquarium piece
‘This is my final offer’ I look at how, in a crowded environment, the way to avoid competition is to evolve to become different from other, similar life forms to oneself.
I use the Chameleon lightbox to represent mimicry where one’s behaviour passively and unintentionally changes to match that of others in one’s current social environment. According to some scientists a chameleon’s skin changes colours in response to it’s emotions, such as anger or fear, changes in light, temperature or humidity.
The more traditional prints on paper express the crepuscular world found between night and day, earth and sea.
I admit to often being drawn to in- between worlds, the transitory, fleeting, elusive elements of sea and sky.
The beauty of this world of ours is that it cannot be permanently possessed.
