My work is an ongoing analysis of self and identity through the majestic creature known as the mermaid. Humanity as a whole chooses to ignore our mortality and the organic instincts that drive us, and the mermaid reminds us of those. We choose to disregard that we are time-based, living beings that age with each passing day.
Eternal beauty, death, primal instincts; they all hang in the balance and two out of the three are overlooked in our culture. Self-reflection in front of the mirror just replicates the external self but have you ever stopped to remember what you’re made of?
