Catch and Release (In Progress)
Catch and Release is a series on living in Maine and human relationships with their environment. The pieces explore the mating and behavior patterns of various local Maine mammals, birds, and fish as they correspond to my own personal relationship experiences. Fly-fishing is represented in this work as it relates to my childhood time spent with my father, who is now estranged. I have also been teaching myself to trap and tan pelts as part of the process of making these new pieces. Through the work, I seek to explore empathy and how to relate to others by looking at wildlife and their habits.
