‘Gills’ is an exploration of tension. The inspiration came from studying the detail of an exquisite fungus; at it’s peak, and some tendrils of lichen. The work captures this moment in the life cycle. The work is left teetering on the edge; leaving the viewer with the question what will happen next, we know that decay will follow. We want to hold onto the moment, hold back time. Gills represents a moment in time that will never be recaptured.
