Tethered


A series of paintings shown at Braunstein Quay Gallery in San Francisco, CA in March 2011.

Tethered metaphorically explores the innocence and vulnerability associated with childhood. The drawings and paintings blur the line between observation and imagination. The sculptures, composed of discarded stuffed animals sewn over taxidermy forms observe how childhood and adulthood encircle one another.
