Inspired by nature and natural phenomenon, Anthony’s work is built using these natural stimulus and imagery to explore metaphors about human existence and social ideas.
“I want to encourage people to see the beauty in the natural world that surrounds us all, to question how we relate and interact with nature, but also how nature naturally reflects many aspects of our existence.” - (Anthony Middleton)
