The inexhaustible imagery of nature is a timeless inspiration and one that has always fed into my art. ‘Constellations’ projects the incredible intricacies of natural anatomy against the fathomless wall of the greater universe. This kind of fantastical imagining is a hallmark of the Surrealist style I wanted to explore, along with incongruous juxtapositions of subject matter. The viewfinder markings surrounding this queer beast reflect the fruitlessness of humankind’s efforts to pin down the enigma they live inside of.
