About the Work

“The works produced as a unit in commenting on the concept of mutual objectification, as dictated by our culture and human nature. The idea of authentic masculinity arises, males are viewed solely for the purpose of protection and provision for his female counterpart, who utilizes the opportunity to gain, by surrendering herself to facilitate his sexual needs as a reward. Hence, together males and females form a symbiotic relationship where neither has the ability to sustain itself effectively without the other.”
