I have been engaging Charles Darwin’s life and work artistically over the past three years in a focused investigation of the role of the imagination in light of evolutionary biology. The Galapagos Cactus Wars is based on the vegetation I found during a trip to the Galapagos Islands.

Metamorphosis, transformation and sentience are themes that inform the work.
