'concrete marrow' is a series of works that imagines a future where destruction and redevelopment are so constant, animals have evolved to mimic and absorb parts of common machinery and construction equipment. each piece is based on anatomical diagrams of plants, insects, fish, birds, and mammals from across the Pacific Northwest. these close ups are then stretched, warped, and combined with mechanical parts and other elements the artist has seen throughout the cities of the Lower Mainland. the mixture of texture and material throughout the exhibition gives the works a chaotic and ever-changing energy. pieces are stacked haphazardly on top of each other, plinths, concrete, and scrap metal. a very internal examination of human and non-human lives suddenly becomes very alien. through this exhibition the artist examines our constantly developing environmental crises and the little-acknowledged mingling with and the effect of the city on strange, hopeful, and horrifying non-human-ness.
