Everyone has parts of themselves they don’t like, parts that people can spend their entire lives fighting. Over the years, I have found plenty of these parts within myself. These four works paired with the audio overlay, collectively called IUSUS NATURE are the personifications of some of the darkest parts of what I have found about myself. By dragging these monstrosities into the light and giving them their own space to breathe I found that even these parts of myself can be beautiful; even loved, and in the light of day, aren’t so overwhelming or bad.
