2D rare earth series

My Rare Earth series underlines the tenuous quality of life as we know it and highlights the wonder, age and fragility of this life-packed globe. In creating these pieces I am motivated not by concern for the species currently dominating it, but for the phenomena of its presence in a universe apparently containing so few life-supporting dots.
