Wilding Silva Domus

About This Project

Silva Domus – Latin for “forest dweller” depicts a white tailed deer in closeup, with the figure emerging from a carnival inspired, layered and patterned background. The figure itself is created using layers of patterns, referencing the layers of perception we hold at any given moment.

The Wilding series is inspired by the intersection of human and wild… we desire to touch something that is unaltered and deeply rooted, and by doing so we change it and it changes us.  We crave wilderness and an experience of something far from pavement.  These pieces have been created using decidedly urban materials… spray paint, graffiti materials and techniques, sometimes building materials, reclaimed materials… depicting images of the wild world with which we seek to connect.
