My work often examines the subject of Anthropomorphism. Here, I have explored the human/animal relationship, and included mythology and science to tell a 'story'. With Undine, I've explored the beauty of a Bottlenose dolphin skull (Tursiops truncatus), gathered from photographs taken of the animal in a display case. I've touched on the mythology of Undine – a water nymph from European folklore - to present the animal in 'humanised' form. This is not a foreign concept, we've all grown up with the popularisation of mythology in films, television, media etc. However, what we 'prefer' to see, is complete 'human' form – as with the UnSeenBrothers, '… eye comprehends the body, as a human body, but not the face (or skull) – thereby introducing a juxtaposition in what we 'see' versus what we 'know'.” The features of the body (soft and feminine) reflect how I viewed the forms of the skull.
