An observation of the changing nature of masculinity. Recent decades have unleashed parts of the male that have been bound by societal expectations for their behavior. The issue of the male identity is of crucial importance. Many boundaries of a gendered world built around work and family -- production versus reproduction, hard vs. soft -- have been blurred.
The images that have formed through this exploration are masculine but blurred with textures, prints and colors that in the past have been reserved for femininity to highlight the ever changing role of man in modern society.
