Her work is about our relationship with the rest of nature, explored through notions of change, the passing of time, and the transience of everything around us. For her, creating seemingly solid structures or forms from thousands of individually suspended elements has a direct relation with my experience of these forces. There is a sense of fragility and a lack of solidity that carries through all the sculptures. As if they are somewhere between movement and stillness, and thus in possession of a certain energy. Animals, birds and insects have been present in her recent sculptures, and she used suspense to create something akin to freeze frames. In some works, animals might appear to rest, fly or fall through other seemingly solid suspended forms. In other works, insects appear to fly in static formations. The evidence of gravity - or lack of it - inherent in these scenarios is what brings them to life, or death.
