Inspired by my contemplation on the interrelation of life on Earth, I am creating this series “Planetary Interconnected” which shows parts of different animals flowing together. This combination creates a surreal chimera of species from the same region of the world, some of them being endemic to that region. Each piece is rendered in rich detail with a sensitive use of graphite.
A fragment of the human form is also included, since we are another one of the animals of these regions. Although we as humans often have the most influence on the lives of other animals, my goal is to visually minimize the importance of humans to create hope for a more balanced future.
Here’s an introduction to Planetary Interconnected that I created while working on my third piece, Mocking: Squirrel & Mockingbird.
The working title of this series was Mélange, which is mentioned in the video.
