Jasmyne Graybill-Artist
My installations and sculptures are inspired by the innate logic of natural growth and reflect the intrinsic beauty of these processes and intimate ecosystems. Borrowing from the familiar forms of fungus, lichen, and mold, I invent and sculpt fictional organisms that graft onto manufactured domestic objects and infest the nooks and crannies of architectural spaces. Juxtaposed against the rigid contours of architecture and man-made items, these organisms exploit inanimate structures as alternative "hosts". These "hosts" provide sustenance and physical support, and ultimately become a fertile hot bed of reproduction. Challenging notions of synthetic and organic, real and imagined, these sculptures and installations allude that through the passage of time these spaces and objects will become overtaken.
