A wonderful combination of the natural and unnatural.
Artist Ellen Jewett has taken her years of studying art and science to create some remarkable sculptures that merge plantlife and animals into fluid creations. From technique to materials, all completely non-toxic, she uses every aspect of the creative process to play a role in her work.
She writes on her website, “These qualities are not only present in the final work but are fleshed out in the process of building. Each sculpture is constructed using an additive technique, layered from inside to out by an accumulation of innumerable tiny components. Many of these components are microcosmic representations of plants, animals and objects. Some are beautiful, some are grotesque and, some are fantastical. The singularity of each sculpture is the sum total of its small narrative structures.”
The final product is a gorgeous blend of the natural and unnatural in these dreamlike creatures.
