About the work...

Myka Baum's is an interdisciplinary artist.
Their practice is concerned with the fragility of nature and how we have become so disconnected from both nature and our animal being. 
The work is largely informed by her deep engagement with and close observation of nature, ’feeling her way intellectually into the inner heart of a thing to locate what is unique and inexpressible in it’ (Henri Bergson).
Key processes include photography and small sculptures , working with and often assisted by nature.
