Growth was one of the last pieces completed in the Southernoids I Series. This piece was a meditation on decomposition. I studied natural-based textures associated with this theme such as fungus and healing wounds. The meditation on this theme also informed the processes-- burning, twisting, and boiling-- that I used in manipulating the fabric. These eventually brought me to explore the decaying process and what comes after-- different and new life.
