Anemone incursions III: puss puss

On one level this is a playful romp through imaginary hybrid life forms. But on another level the question is: ‘What will happen here when the host is outgrown?’ This work is a frozen moment in a narrative, a question, which has no answer. Does the growth overrun the entire gallery and everything around it? Or are the tiny colonies doomed, unable to sustain further growth by themselves? Is an equilibrium possible? I like my works to start a conversation with the viewer – the work starts to resonate through that flow. If a work answers its own questions then it’s dead.
