Squirewell uses his intense curiosity and research in indigenous cultures, sacred geometry, science, and binary coding to present a commentary on race, identity, memory, and lifeʼs dualities. He tackles these themes taking influence from science fiction novels, and ancient mythological stories. Squirewell transforms ordinary materials into precious imagery by fusing seemingly disparate ideas, balancing the masculine and feminine, merging technology with organics, and the natural with the supernatural. The works approach a spiritual realm making them powerfully thought provoking and also meditative.
