My work ‘Anarchy in Nature’ expresses the dichotomy of repetition, superposition, and chaos found in nature juxtaposed with the order, direction, and harmony also found in them. Nature is constantly regenerating and reproducing, and our ecosystem is like an uncontrollable whirlpool of chaos, but nature and humans harmonize within it. The theme of my artwork is the relationship between the laws of nature and the laws of the human ecosystem while realizing it through clay with inspiration from Hawaiʻi s landscape.
