Decomposed, Recomposed presents an intimate display of unique perspectives on form and cultural practice surrounding the post-mortem through the language of sculpture. Death in both a physical and metaphysical sense are examined by way of glass and metalworking. Diverse themes of the domestic; the wild and the aesthetic; the deeply spiritual suggest the multi-faceted manner in which the natural world is employed as a comparative device not only for humanity's most adverse and complex shared destiny, but also the manner in which a life is to be honored by those still living.
