Male Birds Series
Social Media and Gender Roles
Often, male birds are far more colorful than their female counterparts. Male Birds features 9 vibrantly feathered male birds, isolated on graphic backgrounds and contained in wireframe instagram ‘share’ symbols. The text spanning across all 9 canvases was pulled from an unsolicited facebook comment about my appearance. This work alludes to male and female stereotypes, the online proliferation of gender roles, and juxtaposes the natural and virtual subject.
