Examining trends of dress and art history, this body of work contrast the portrayals of masculine portraiture in a contemporary context while adorning the physicality and sexuality of this macho mentality. By confronting these sensitivities utilizing metal and the gestures performed when making, the work conflates an intimate and revealing look at masculine personality.
