london-based artist ellie davies explores our relationship with nature through a series of structures created using a variety of traditional
and experimental techniques. the sculptures are fabricated using materials gathered from the forest floor – once completed,
they function as symbols representing a creative process in which the artist introduces herself to the environment ephemerally and non-invasively.
after some time, the ‘dwellings’ settle into the surrounding space and take on their own personality – they are consequently photographed
in their evolved state. the nest-like forms are intended as a way of mark-making and investigate the concept of building in order to provide shelter,
sanctuary, seclusion, and play.
