Wild Life is an ongoing exploration of process which conjures native, animal forms using discarded material found locally.  

26 beasts have thus far been birthed throughout

3 years and 4 continents.

 

The results are a conversation between land, animal and human. 

 

 

Each work has been commissioned without renderings to enable an intuitive method, making space for animal intervention. The following creatures are large scale sculptural sketches.  Each beast is conceived, hand cut and built freestyle by a dedicated 1-3 person team with an average of 3 weeks build time.
