Ean Dawbarn

| Ean works with mostly found materials, animal parts and insects, portraying them as beautiful in life and death. His inspirations are nature and industry: mankind ability to control and alter the landscape juxtaposed with nature's formidable powers. The central aspect of his work is the armour, designed to create an effect which blends the natural form with that of a manufactured and engineered structure. The external formation of the work and the internal housing unifies and balances the relationship between our planet and its inhabitants: symbionts, humans and animals co-operating, changing their fragile environments for survival.
