Carya ovata: LungsCarya ovata or the Shagbark Hickory tree has layers of bark growing over itself to produce a shaggy texture. Since bark serves as protection for a trees life source, this body of work brings us back to our roots by covering our vital areas with a skin-like bark made of replicated pieces of the hickory tree. Tucking the delicate silver accents under the silicone layers as butterflies seek protection, the silver is highlighting their fragility. The color gradation signifies the metamorphosis between skin and bark as they grow into each other and become one.Silicone, Silver, Monochrome Filament 2014
