Overtaken Series

In 2018, I began a series of pieces that explored thoughts I was having about how people interact with nature. 

One thought I started to dwell on was how incredibly necessary nature is to the existence of humans, but how seemingly unnecessary we are to the health and growth of nature and how for granted we, as a species, take the very things we need to survive. I began to imagine how humans would react to nature if it began to treat us with the same neglect and abuse as we dish out. This series visually reflect that concept. 

Relationships between people and environment weren't just touched on visually, but also with materials. All paper used in this series was recycled and hand-dyed with natural colors. Items ranging from coffee, fruits, vegetables and spices were used to dye each sheet of paper, giving each piece uniques coloring and textures.
