The anonymous cruelty with which nature destroys us all is easily overlooked in the everyday, but it descends on everyone and everything eventually. The works presented here explore the themes of life, death and rebirth. They seek to provide a frame through which to consider the fleeting beauty and fragility of life, without peddling in fear or overt violence.
