Pullulate (2023)

Pullulate explores our relationship to death and the possibility of rebirth. In this series, seven Hagstones are wall-mounted and "presented" on silk cushions, each containing individually painted and glued pine needles, appear to grow out of the sides and tops of the rocks. In another exploration of these concerns is Pelt – a piece of dead bark cast in living mycelium (mushrooms), somewhat resembling an animal pelt. 

Hagstones are rocks that have naturally occurring holes in them. The oddity and rarity of the stones has long made them a focus of folk magic, where they've been used for everything from fertility spells to warding off ghosts. Their holes are also considered to be portals to invisible worlds.
