Moths undergo tremendous change as they transform from a cocoon to a caterpillar to a winged insect. They also seek the light. As such, moths are traditionally regarded as a sign of enlightenment, change and adaptability.

 

The Hermaphrodite Moth series are drawn with ink on paper, but with a drawing impediment. The impediment limits control over the sketching and only allows one half of the moth to be drawn at a time. Two moth halves are then paired to make a whole moth. The Hermaphrodite Moth represents the wisdom to adapt to our everchanging environment and to embrace the imperfection.
