Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Graphite, Acetate and Gold Leaf on Paper.

The Utilitas series explores the relationship of human beings within nature. The term Utilitas (usefulness in Latin) refers to the act of making nature a commodity. Although members of the animal kingdom, we constantly quest to deny this fact and separate ourselves from nature. This series of images examines and comments on the socio-political and cultural constructs developed to create the illusion of dominance or ownership over nature and our environment – ranging from scientific classification and exploration to rituals of ownership through naming, from religious division to revised evolution through man-made (un-natural) selection.
This artwork features the schematic of the "Brookes", a British slave ship. This references the idea of false ownership and life as a commodity.
