Adaptations is a painting addressing our plasticity within imposed conditions. In particular, the relentless nurturing condition of females. The subject matter is derived from observed parallels between modern women and the plight of the american pit bull with a delicate nod to the new birth defects our world faces from years of war, neglect, and abuse. The composition relates to the Etruscan statue of Romulus and Remus being suckled by a she-wolf. We seem to tell the same stories over and over.
