My sculpture is influenced by comparative anatomy drawings of man in relation to animal from the 18th century. In this work the head has been replaced by a massive mouth, borrowed from Grey's tome on anatomy. The piece is a continuum of an ongoing project that explores our place within the natural world, both real and imagined, and the unintended consequences of our interventions into it. The work is made from powder-coated solid metal, cast by hand into fabric waste-moulds.
