Through our senses we experience the world yet M-theory tells us our perceptions are false - space and energy form the universe minute strings vibrating through up to 11 dimensions creating what we perceive to be solid matter.

Our ancestors tried to explain natural energies giving them the shape we are most familiar with, our own. For them, what we view as myth was information vital for understanding their place in the world. Now we look to science to explain the inexplicable but most of us still only really grasp what we discover by reference to ourselves, our own form, our perceptions.

Will our descendents look back at our understanding and view it as myth.

For this exhibition I created drawings and sculptures which continue my exploration of the figure within nature developingĀ a myth-inspired narrative which asks: What is perception? What is reality?


You may also be interested in the life studies which were shown alongside these drawings, and the next series of drawings which begin to develop the figure within science.
