Tommy Mavra
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: I am interested in how we negotiate our place in nature. Technology, medicine, housing, farming, etc. are thought of as being artificial, yet they support the survival of our species. If survival is what motivates the actions of all living things, our “artificial” creations are also part of nature. However, no other animal has the impact on the eco system that we do. In the long term it seems that our inventions, designed to insure our success, will usher in the end of most life on Earth. I focus on narratives of our everyday interactions with animals, the food we eat and the things we buy to reassess situations overlooked due to their banality. Ordinary moments are dramatized to encourage an investigation of our expectations and assumptions. My work examines the paradoxical relationship mankind has with the natural world; it’s beauty and repulsiveness.
