Description: Digging into the origin of the very word hybrid, you come across a Latin term rarely used before 1850; the term is IBRIDA. Hybrid/ Ibrida is considered an amalgamation of disparate parts resulting in a uniquely homogenized whole. A curious collection of biomorphic forms inspired by botany, entomology, and human anatomy embody my sculptural work. The inside turns outside, the micro turns macro and each piece conveys human attributes through poise and posture. I invite my audience to approach each piece with thoughts of wonder, possibility, protection and vulnerability during my Master’s Thesis Exhibit at The Falls of the Ohio Interpretive Center.
