тотем

01 Nov тотем

This piece was a collaboration with Samantha Davey. I have been living in Bulgaria for a while now and this is the first piece of work I have publicly displayed. I have been working on new Moon Temples for about 6 months and occasionally returning to the UK for Brick Projects. This piece was shown at Sofia Fusion Art Fest II from the 8th-9th October 2016.

Our TOTEM project is a creative response to our environment and our experience of Bulgaria; drawing inspiration from the country’s mysteries, history and traditions – referencing ancient symbolic art from other parts of the world. Through using found objects in-situ, we built a collaborative piece of work which served as a symbol of our experience and expressed our love for mythology, folk arts and ritual while honouring the secret history of the materials’ heritage.
