Jasmyne Graybill draws from the familiar forms of fungus, lichen, and mold to create installations and sculptures that are inspired by the innate logic of natural growth and decay. Her work reflects the intrinsic beauty of these processes and intimate ecosystems. She invents and sculpts fictional organisms that graft onto manufactured domestic objects and infest the nooks and crannies of their “host” architectural spaces. These hosts provide sustenance and physical support, and ultimately become a fertile hot bed of reproduction. Blurring the notions of synthetic and organic, real and imagined, Graybill’s work suggests that through the passage of time, man made spaces and objects may be overtaken by nature.
