Carrara marble
35 x 40 x 4 cm, 2019

Hybrid is a marble piece representing two species of corals – branching coral and brain coral – combined as an abstract creation. I used marble as there are similar visual and physical characteristics in common with coral that make them both strong yet fragile. While trying to preserve the beauty of coral, I try to express my thoughts about how crossbreeding coral species could be necessary to ensure their survival.
