My work focuses on making 3D sculptural objects using different materials and processes. I have a keen interest in DNA and Genetics. The FBN1 Gene is responsible for causing Marfan Syndrome, an inherited genetic condition. One of its symptoms is Spinal Curvature such as Scoliosis and Kyphosis. Deforming the body, shortening the torso, pushing out the shoulder blade, tilting the hips, and adjusting the normal body ratios.

 

I create sculptural objects portraying these curves and twists. The imagery I use is created digitally using DNA tables and the Marfan Gene. They are applied using custom silk screens and stencils.
