Metamorphosis is a series of collages made with organic materials such as butternut squash, carrots, yams, strawberries, spinach, blueberries, etc. The ingredients went through a series of processes of cutting, steaming, blending, dehydrating and were transformed into a paper-like structure with a hint of smell from the ingredients. Then, I used these organic sheets to make nonrepresentational patterns that are geometric and universal. This process transforms the organic ingredients into something that is completely man-made and artificial in a way that they are seen as “art”. However, due to their organic property, the sheets are not preserved and will eventually rotten. This process emphasizes the power of nature and the oppositions. It about erasing, decomposing, growing and decaying.
