The drawings evoke a hybrid of plant, animal, and human forms. The movement and repetition in the drawings evoke fractal like structures that are abundant in nature. Evolution is alluded to in the work as each form is an organic hybrid of various forms of life, depicted in a state of transformation and metamorphosis. The insect-like bodies appear to be evolving braids resulting in an overall human shape, thereby dissolving the distinction between plant, animal, and human categories and fusing abstract and figurative elements into one. The ultimate result reflects the evolutionary process of beginning with the simplest, one celled organism evolving into the various complex expressions of life.
