The first three pieces in this new series were exhibited in Grand Rapids, Michigan at ArtPeers Fall Festival (in Bear Manor Properties) on September 17, 2011.  These 14” x 17” charcoal drawings, set in white frames decorated with synthetic fur and roses, are representations of sensuality within the context of Victorian decoration.  Light, darkness, sex, repression, femininity, and mortality are words which were kept in mind while creating these works.
Update 12/13/11:  After much deliberation, I have removed the spider imagery from the first drawing.
