“Hybrids and Prototypes”
The series of drawings “Hybrids and Prototypes” are close-ups of imaginary shapes kinetically mutating into the natural world. The theme analyzes the transformation of nature from atom to seed of invented organisms within the environment. I envisioned these drawings as vials encapsulating and sheltering an invented world in hibernation. Literally the drawings are incubation tanks on a sheet of paper. They are ecological maps involving all phases of growth from germination to putrefaction.
