Over time we have gradually come to realise that we also have a responsibility, not only to those creatures under our control but to all of those that we share this planet with. This series, entitled ‘Dominion II’, seeks to consider multiple facets of our relationship with animals and in a wider context, with each other. This series of formal but slightly absurd taxidermy ‘Bird Portraits’ contemplates the ways in which we foist our desires onto others. Without an understanding of how the world is perceived from alternative points of view, are we destined to continue imposing our own blinkered ideas and ideals on both nature and others outside of our field of familiarity?
