Lisa Black

I am absolutely taken by the work of Lisa Black. It's a disturbing image of man made industrial objects, imposed onto the natural world, onto soft and delicate animals. I particularly like the skulls, they make me think about how humans try to avoid death, it may be the skull of the future, implanted with metal plates and micro chips. Its a scary and confronting idea. Her pieces are beautiful in a bitter sweet kind of way.

She also makes a line of jewellery with butterflies, available on her website.
