Religion, sex, and gender roles serve as a backdrop for the players in this odd production of human/animal interactions, using subtle gestures coupled with more overt content to comment on the pursuit of, and loss of love and self.

My work attempts to observe and perhaps scrutinize these universal problems through the dichotomies of love and aggression, apathy and empathy, and completely giving up, as I search to discover more about one's own masochism in love and femininity (or lack thereof).
