Animals have been used in art as metaphors and referends for human experiences and
emotions since the beginning of time.
They are sources of comfort, wisdom, bliss, tragedy, insight and survival yet we often
take advantage of and abuse these very animals as well as their environments for our
own benefit and comfort.
My work stems from this ironic animal-human dichotomy and strives to challenge the
viewer to take a more profound look at how easily we betray the ecosystem thus
negatively impacting the very thing that sustains our own survival.
Through this concept I aim to advocate that our apathetic actions paralleled with their
organic susceptibility are not just occurring in a distant zone of war, but rather at the
heart of our very own domestic and intimate lives.
By saving them, we save ourselves.
By destroying them, we destroy ourselves.
