EXHIBITION VISCERAL VIRTUAL

Visceral Virtual

The wolf and the goat are common motifs in the foundational mythologies and cosmologies throughout Eurasia and North America. Both wolf and goat have both nurtured powerful mythological heroes in their infancy. The totemic value of these creatures aided shamans to seek knowledge and transformed spiritual experiences into non-ordinary reality by identifying with the spirit of these creatures.

These sculptures offer up a modern visceral urban folk myth. Craft is aided by technology to afford a new status by providing a new kind perceivable reality, the non-physical digital reality. The backdrop to these sculptures provides an arc for this last chapter of the narrative. 

The paintings portray the fragility of civilisation where time, war and natural disaster take their toll and the myths dye with them too. Nature reclaims what she has sown and a new cycle starts again.
