Inspired by Dutch Golden Age floral still life paintings, Stilled Chimeras are botanical, animal, and fungal assemblages of impermanent fantasies.

Tucked within each of the chimeras are small dicklettes—sex-safe silicone sculptures, which I cast from roots, fruits, and vegetables. Soft and fleshy in shimmering shades of pink, these sculptures blur the bounds of what can be read as plant or animal, masculine or feminine, real or fantastic.
