This work explores narratives of struggle. There are things that grow and thrive against one’s will–an internal and external “rooting out,” with an eventual return that becomes a cycle of time. Decorative, dense tangles of weeds and overgrowth serve as metaphors for personal habits and behaviors we’d like to eliminate. Grotesque fairy-like figures play out across the dense thickets to suggest narratives questioning personal moments and how we define identity, gender, animalistic behavior, sexuality and fantasy.
