Our biggest enemy and our greatest defender is nature. As humans, we strive for life and perfection. We toil the earth, we drain its resources, we ask nature to parent us, yet in a breath lash out and fight over its boundaries. We are human.
Cruel Nature creates forms that struggle in space, their sharp edges and soft curves, capturing humanities ultimate powerlessness against nature but also the beauty of our creativity. This work looks at the ultimate struggle in life, our ultimate war – to live and carve our existence into the land. With our last breath we resign ourselves to transformation, willing or not. Our lives perpetuate cycles carved deep into the soil by previous generations. Cruel Nature responds to the transformations in our lives and the struggles we endure that make us human.
