“When a man wants to murder a tiger he calls it sport; when the tiger wants to murder him he calls it ferocity.”
— George Bernard Shaw

From the series Ferocity, this work explores human nature, violence, and our unwillingness to accept ourselves as animals. Using steel and leather to produce works which are both crude and refined, I investigate the conflicts between brutality, suffering, and desire. Exploring themes which both menace and seduce, I question the ethics of using natural materials and the treatment of animals in society today.
