Newest work of La Mer abstracts the architecture of marine life starting with the ocean’s microscopic realm, our planet’s primary producers to coral and beyond. The sculptures play on concepts of marine life, infusing elements of colonies, the exquisite interdependent networks of single-cells, their growth process via binary fission as well as coral reef ecosystems.

Jacques Cousteau said people protect what they love. One must first be aware of the essentials that make life possible on this blue planet. My work magnifies and shares a climacteric invitation to do just that, fall in love.
