Formal and material correspondences are explored in near-shamanistic arrangements of mass-produced, handmade, or found objects and organic materials, including food and plants. These works speak to the precarious balance between human and natural environments, to a deep concern yet also hope. Like small, fragile but independent ecosystems, all elements are integrated and play off each other.  Britta Konau,  Art Critic
