I am fascinated with the types of organic objects that come out of the American West. I grew up visiting the Rocky Mountains, and I’ve always had a strong allure to objects like skulls, antlers, arrowheads, feathers, and so on. I have made many friends with large collections of these items throughout my time in Montana, and I turn to them when I have ideas like this.
This series came about after experimenting with some milk and food coloring and looking to find a way to mesh solid organic objects with it. Eventually, it turned into an environmental commentary about how the industrial world clashes with the natural. The food coloring represents a sort of oily sewage, whereas the objects represent nature drowning in it.
