In this series, I use primarily ink to create meticulous drawings that depict the beauty and fragility of endangered species. In a contemporary way, much different from the medieval bestiaries, she aims to echo a connection with these animals. The saturated ink and its invasion over the body is also a representation of us humans, and our own invasion over the natural world. By highlighting the flora and fauna at risk in an era of human driven mass extinction, the artist wishes to infuse feelings for people to defend the preservation of the natural world, lingering way beyond the present show.
