“My search for beauty and purpose manifests into forms that abstract femininity and vitality. Reshaping the body demonstrating curiosity about science, medicine and the search for human perfection. Within my work the human body is displaced retaining ranges of recognizable features-but what remains behind is an interest in the dispersal and fertilization of the feminine mystique.” - Younkins Herzog
