Fossil is a continuing series of works focused on the human mind’s inability to understand the vastness of time. I want the viewer to look at these images and feel the amount of time between us, these common plants we all have held. We see these plants used in bouquets or ornamentals in front yards yet these plants have an incredible story of survival as far back as 380 million years old. Ginkgo for example has lasted through the ice ages and is also known as some of the only surviving trees after the 1945 atom bomb blast over Hiroshima. Using the advent of bees, a creature we all know and have grown up with, first appeared approximately 120 million years ago. Using this recognizable creature as my dating point to show how old these living fossils are and the very different world they were born from. Highlighting both the immensity of time and also the fragility that is life.

Kyle was born in Racine, Wisconsin, USA, and is currently living and working in Sydney, Australia. Kyle studied Visual Arts at University Wisconsin Parkside. His work is inspired by anthropomorphism and how objects are represented in different cultural contexts. He is fascinated by how the human mind crafts meaning from the inanimate and how the viewer’s personal history shapes that experience.
