Ashley Boh

My work explores the cycles of this mysterious world, whether it’s life, death, the small human cycles in between, or every cycle that goes beyond the living things of this earth. This piece, Magnificent Fish, explores the gruesomeness and beauty of death. It serves as a metaphor for the life cycle, but marking an unclear beginning and end. With it weighing about 12lbs, I created the feeling of a dead, stagnant creature. Through my choices of fabric, beads, string and other materials to bring this sculpture to life, I hope to give the viewer something more to contemplate.
