-Nearly Dead -
Depicting sweet animal imagery and fairy tale iconography, this collection represents the reality of life by juxtaposing cuteness with cruelty.
Eastern philosophy poses the idea that opposing or seemingly contrary forces are interconnected in the natural world – darkness/light, sadness/happiness and death/light. Encompassing these ideas, and subverting popular childhood memories of innocent fairy stories and magical forest scenery, this collection brings together a fun and comical sense of the realities of human existence, with macabre undertones.
