Paintings and sculptures inspired by geological and gemmological formations, remind us of the strange and sublime beauty of nature. Gemstones, as coveted objects, present a complicated relationship between the natural world and us; as we hunt, collect and refine them, they become instilled with human values. This body of work deconstructs and reinterprets their forms, removing facets and breaking stones into abstract shards, highlighting internal depths and building new structure. By pulling apart our vision of the perfect gem, preconceived notions attached to it are removed, leaving us to focus us on its extraordinariness.
