Beauty In Decay
“Dear Death, I accept that when you finally come for me, it may feel like the end. But it is not.”
Finding a decomposing animal is the woods always brings mixed emotions- sadness for what has been lost, a sense of awe and respect for the life it provides to the ones who are left. This large assemblage is inspired by this. It is constructed of wood, an anatomical figure made of wire, clay and alpaca wool, fabric entrails, silk flying insects, fabric ferns, leaves and vines, branches, dried flowers, bird’s nest and eggs made clay.
It measures 26 x 32 x 14 inches.
