“I am inspired by nature’s infinite possibility of creation and the organic forms of microscopic organisms. At each stage of creation, cells change in form through growth, division, and extinction, creating order and harmony within nature. Using silicone, a synthetic material that can change in texture and transparency, I express the organic movement and shape of cells with their mysterious color and constantly changing forms.”
