About The Artwork

'Gattacantha' addresses our search for origins and belonging. A skeletal fish signifies our natural ancestry. The image below it balances two concepts used to distance ourselves from our humble natural heritage. A stream of code from the human genome (gattaca) signifies ‘science’ and our physical journey, structured in a pyramidal form to mimic imposed hierarchical categorization of nature with ‘us’ as the apex. Embedded in the coding is the second concept: hidden names of religions, demonstrating a spiritual search for origins. These ‘labels’ are not present in the actual coding, representing differences in explanations of self.

I am an artist specializing in painting, etching and drawing. My works reflect on the struggle between the need to distance ourselves from our animalistic, primitive nature (or dominate it), and the inherent desire for contact with it.
