Reclamation

by Aedan Graves
Artist Statement

 

Reclamation is a series of three animated portraits, digitally altered with the addition of different types of floral and fungal growth. 

Inspired by the surrealist works of Rene Magritte, I try to achieve a similar dreamlike eeriness in my work, but with the mediums of photography and animation. Through the deconstruction of the face and natural growth overtaking it, I explore the inherent connection we have with our natural environment.
