I was pleasantly surprised to see how disturbing some the skin textures became. Motifs in this series include obsessions with superficiality, sexuality, and procreation as a means of solidifying one’s self-worth and how these obsessions are passed down the maternal line. Important symbols include the chain, which represents domestication or imprisonment, the skull, which represents the death of independence, and the gilded angel, which represents purity or innocence, whether real or perceived.
