The following images document various aspects of my studio practice from the end of 2014 to the present. My current body of work in the making involves the collection of animal skeletons and insects (primarily moths and beetles), both of which have to go through extensive preparation before being photographed. Insects arrive brittle and dry, which requires them to go through a process of rehydration before they can be manipulated into place. Skeletons often have to be broken, reassembled and weathered in dirt. I will continue to chronicle the studio and the steps which lead up to the end result as I continue working.
